"Readers, my favorite poet, Billy Collins. Billy Collins, my readers."

“It seems only yesterday I used to believe
There was nothing under my skin but light.
But now when I fall upon the sidewalks of life,
I skin my knees. I bleed.”
~Billy Collins-“On Turning Ten”

“We are all so foolish…
So damn foolish,
We have become beautiful without even knowing it.”
~Billy Collins-“Nightclub”

“I think what I am really saying is that language is better than reality…”
~Billy Collins-“Bathtub Families”
