I Am Has Been Will Be



Me Oedipus Macbeth
Me Alice in Wonderland marry The Ancient Mariner
Me have Great Expectations for Les Misérables
Me Hobbit in Gormenghast
Me double plus ungood “don't panic”
Me Atlas Shrugged, The Edible Woman
I wandered lonely as a cloud
I wander through each chartered street
Whose woods these are, I think I know
I caught a tremendous fish
I heard a fly buzz———when I died
To the virgins to make much of time
what happens to a dream deferred
Oh, but it is dirty!
“The Yellow Wallpaper”
“A Hunger Artist”
“A Worn Path”
A&P
DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest to children ardent for some desperate glory the old lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori.
RAGE RAGE
