Packing for School



Grim prompter of forgotten lines
With wings of sable night,
Stealing the light of day,
Why have you come
In this, my perfect port,
O why?
O why?
In this, my perfect port,
Why have you come
Stealing the light of day
With wings of sable night,
Grim prompter of forgotten lines.

-Jack London, "Memory"

"grim prompter of forgotten lines"

yes.

jack london is one of my favorite writers. he's one of those guys who i have enjoyed reading (and being read to) since when i was really young, and has always been a standard in my mind.

Thank you! I've had years of angst with which to hone my craft.

Your blog does a good job keeping me in the know about women's fashion and andy warhol, so i appreciate that.
