Chalk Talks

New Walk and whereabouts:

Oh Lord, help me to be pure, but not yet.
- St. Augustine

What if this weren't a hypothetical question?

Under my second favourite Leicester chestnut tree, next to New Walk Museum:

yes is a pleasant country
if's wintry
(my lovely)
let's open the year

both is the very weather
(not either)
my treasure,
when violets appear

love is a deeper season
than reason;
my sweet one
(and april's where we're)
- e.e. cummings
Clock Tower:

Victoria Park:

When I pronounce the word future
the first syllable already belongs to the past
When I pronounce the word silence
I destroy it
When I pronounce the word nothing
I make something no non-being can hold
- W. Szymborska
