"You are just a tenant here, you say

living in and out of this life

as cheaply as you can.

I sit here in the darkness


Like an old woman

Thoughts knot and click like brittle bones

doing too much

Trying to question all of this

Trying so hard to fade out

in the blackness

all of the fear

all of the tears that bring us to this..."

Anne Clark, "The Sitting Room" (1982)


  1. "Sometimes it is better that we sit
    here in the silence
    I don't look at you
    and you don't seem to notice
    And the reasons -
    the reasons are impossible to see converge

    They gather like dust upon a shelf"

    (Anne Clark "The Sitting Room" continued)

    I like "Swimming".
