Tennessee Williams, 1911-83
I am tired of speech and of action.
If you should meet me upon a
street do not question me for
I can tell you only my name
and the name of the town I was
born in – But that is enough
It does not matter whether
arrives anymore. If there is
only this night and after it is
morning it will not matter now.
I am tired. I am tired of speech
and of action. In the heart of me
you will find a tiny handful of
dust. Take it and blow it out
upon the wind. Let the wind have
it and it will find its way home.
