Alice Notley

Every time I see Alice Notley read I want to leave my life and just follow her around.


Some Alice:

I don’t care about anything else. I want to see peacocks in my yard right now.

I am listening for something else. Not death but what she hears.

How can we disattach ourselves from those binding us to their use?

I would rain on you if I were rain. Hard.

I’m courting chaos in me.

I am leading you to language that restructures the universe.

We are making what we are. Just that.
