„Candor disarms paranoia.“

„Quem quer que controle a mídia, as imagens, controla a cultura.“


„Nem sabia os nomes
das flores? agora
meu jardim já era“

„Olhando para trás
meu traseiro cobria-se
de cerejeiras em flor“

„Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness.“

„I don't think there is any truth. There are only points of view.“

„I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of the night.“

„The weight of the world is love.
Under the burden of solitude,
under the burden of dissatisfaction
the weight, the weight we carry is love.“


„Concentrate on what you want to say to yourself and your friends. Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness. You say what you want to say when you don't care who's listening.“

„We're all golden sunflowers inside.“

„Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.“

„Our heads are round so thought can change direction“


„Whoever controls the media, the
images, controls the culture.“

„I know too much and not enough“

„Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private.“

„I really believe, or want to believe, really I am nuts, otherwise I'll never be sane.“
