Ritchie, 15

“To love you was pleasant enough,
And, oh! ‘tis delicious to hate you!”

– Thomas Moore (1779 – 1852),
Irish poet

“It lies not in our power to love or hate
For will in us is overrul’d by fate.”

– Christopher Marlowe (1564 – 1593),
English playwright and poet

RITCHIE, 15
(after an “LQ” with Phoebe)

in her heart
now falls a rain
of a thousand needles;
the pain,
a thousand fiddles
could not wane.

for what
in love she gained,
she now disdained!

– November 11, 1999

– between
seduction and abduction
is attraction.

– between
altercation and resolution
is reconciliation.
