Olena Kalytiak Davis

I once heard a woman speak of her loneliness
as if it were a small bird.

 […]
Perhaps longing is just the heart changing
its colors.

Olena Kalytiak Davis, from “Should One Prefer Purity To Intensity Of Soul?,” And Her Soul Out of Nothing. (University of Wisconsin Press, 1997)
