I-I thought of that old joke, you know, this-this-this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, "Doc, uh, my brother's crazy. He thinks he's a chicken." And, uh, the doctor says, "Well, why don't you turn him in?" And the guy says, "I would, but I need the eggs." Well, I guess that's pretty much how how I feel about relationships. You know, they're totally irrational and crazy and absurd and ... but, uh, I guess we keep goin' through it because, uh, most of us need the eggs.

- Woody Allen, Annie Hall
love arrives and dies
in all disguises
and we fear to move
because of old darknesses
or childhood danger

so our withdrawing words
our skating hearts


- Micheal Ondaatje, Handwriting
