Author Quotes

A lot of people call you a feminist painter.

A lot of poets published their own work then; unlike novels, poetry was short, and therefore cheap to do. We had to print each poem separately, and then disassemble it, as there were not enough a's for the whole book; the cover was done with a lino-block. We printed 250 copies, and sold them through bookstores, for 50 cents each. They now go in the rare book trade for eighteen hundred dollars a pop. Wish I'd kept some.

A man in a cloud, with icicle teeth and eyes of fire.

Nobody dies from the lack of sex. It's lack of love we die from.

The facts of this world seen clearly are seen through tears.
