"There will be time, there will be time / To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet..." - T. S. ELIOT, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
"There's a bluebird in my heart that / wants to get out / but I'm too clever, I only let him out / at night sometimes / when everybody's asleep. / I say, I know that you're there, / so don't be / sad. / Then I put him back, / but he's singing a little / in there, I haven't quite let him / die / and we sleep together like that / with our / secret pact / and it's nice enough to/ make a man/ weep, but I don't / weep, do / you?" - Charles Bukowski, Bluebird
