early wisdom

"i think you're the least fucked up
person i've ever met
and that may be as close to the real thing
as i'm ever gonna get"
-Ani DiFranco, "The Diner"

"life is a b movie
it's stupid and it's strange
a directionless story and the dialogue is lame
but in the he said she said
sometimes there's some poetry
if you turn your back long enough
and let it happen naturally
oh, yeah
hell yeah"
-Ani DiFranco, "Hell Yeah"

"we are made to bleed
and scab and heal and bleed again
and turn every scar into a joke
we are made to fight
and fuck and talk and fight again
and sit around and laugh until we choke
sit around and laugh until we choke"
-Ani DiFranco, "Buildings and Bridges"

"i said skeletons are fine
your closet or mine
and we took turns recounting
the details of lost time
and when we had both
admitted it all
we threw our heads back
and laughed until we cried
we laughed because the world
is absurd and beautiful and small"
-Ani DiFranco, "Small World"
