[ It crossed my mind ]Notes on poetics and ethics
It crossed my mind tonight to write about my love. And yet I will not. How strong can the bias be. I have been freed from it; but I think of those enslaved, across whose eyes this bit of paper might chance. And I stop. How pussilanimus. But let me mark a letter as a token of this moment.

9 November 1902
