Chicago is an October sort of city even in spring.

Author, Chicagoan, & weather prophet Nelson Algren would be 105 years old today!

(via 57thstreetbooks)


Sometimes I think that all I want

is to be remembered.

I want to cross oceans just as badly

as I want to cross your mind once in a while.

I don’t know if that’s how you feel too, but if it is

then leave your name on my tongue and

carve your words into my bones.

I’ll take you with me.

He was pointing at the moon, but I was looking at his hand.
— Richard Siken, from “Anyway” (via oofpoetry)
