Just Looking for Paradise .
"I think about you. But I don’t say it anymore."
- Marguerite Duras, Hiroshima, Mon Amour (1959)

Who has not seen their lover
Walking at ease,
Walking like any other
A pavement under trees,
Not singular, apart,
But footed, featured, dressed,
Approaching like the rest
In the same dapple of the summer caught;
Who has not suddenly thought
With swift surprise: there walks in cool disguise,
There comes my heart.

Frances Cornford ‘The Avenue’ (1886-1960)

"You can’t love a man who has no plan of slowing it down a little."
