homeless heart

“When I think of finishing the work, when I think of the finished work, a great sadness overtakes me,a sadness paradoxically like joy. The circumstances of doing put away, the being of it takes possession, like a tenant in a rented house. Where are you now, homeless heart?”

from: Quick Question, John Ashbery
