Favorite Quotes

“I want to rip off your logic and make passionate sense to you./I want to ride in the swing of your hips./ My fingers will dig in you like quotation marks, blazing your limbs into parts of speech.”- Jeffrey McDaniel

“I want to be the girl your parents will use as a bad example of a lady.”- Staceyann Chin

“She kissed as if she, alone, could forge the signature of the sun.”—Saul Williams

“Your body is a church whose doors close to me.
I’m waiting on your steps trying not to tremble, I don’t know any other place that I can go and pray inside of.
It’s why still when I am close to you sometimes my skeleton shivers electric and why sometimes I shudder heavy in this heavy coat called mine…” — Anis Mojgan
