  1. I like you; your eyes are full of language.

    Anne Sexton / Letter to Anne Clarke / July 3 / 1964


  2. One day in the park,
    I had quite a surprise.
    I met a girl,
    who had many eyes.

    She was really quite pretty
    (and also quite shocking)
    and I noticed she had a mouth,
    so we ended up talking.

    We talked about flowers,
    and her poetry classes,
    and the problems she'd have
    if she ever wore glasses.

    It's great to know a girl
    who has so many eyes,
    but you get really wet
    when she breaks down and cries.​

    Tim Burton / The Girl with Many Eyes / The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories / 1997
