I went bicycling earlier and then I took a stroll in the university library. Books have an ability to give me a sense of serenity, even when I'm not reading them. Just the smell, it seems, is enough to relax me. And being aware of the fact that there is so much to learn comforts me, it gives me direction.
I still feel completely devoid of sentiment, however. Pun intended.
things keep popping out
on my face
or of my life
it seems no matter how I try
I become more difficult
I am not an easy woman
How I enjoy the poetic genius of Nikki Giovanni.
