I'd dare to make more mistakes next time.
I'd relax, I would limber up.
I would be sillier than I have been this trip.
I would take fewer things seriously.
I would take more chances.

I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans.
I would perhaps have more actual troubles,
but I'd have fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I'm one of those people who live
sensibly and sanely hour after hour,
day after day.

Oh, I've had my moments,
And if I had it to do over again,
I'd have more of them.
In fact, I'd try to have nothing else.
Just moments, one after another,
instead of living so many years ahead of each day.

I've been one of those people who never goes anywhere
without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat
and a parachute.
If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have.

If I had my life to live over,
I would start barefoot earlier in the spring
and stay that way later in the fall.
I would go to more dances.
I would ride more merry-go-rounds.
I would pick more daisies.

Nadine Stair,
85 years old.

the world deserves no mercy

for why would the world deserve mercy
why would it deserve love
leave it to the chemicals that flow in the blood
and the nerves that let you move
the world deserves no rationality
the world deserves no fairness
leave it to the emotions that run in your mind
and the whims that amuse from time to time
for the herd will never listen to fairness
the herd is just a herd of animals

the world deserves no love
slaughter it when you are hungry and eat it
and throw away the bones
the world deserves no love
cut it and make pulp and paper out of it
the world deserves absolute negligence
for the world is not fair
and it is always the survival of the meanest

for all we have is a bunch of moments
and for all we have
is a bunch of moments
