Julia Vinograd

  • Good and evil are only high and low / on one string of god's violin.

    • Julia Vinograd,
    • "God's Violin," in Street Spirit ()
  • A cold wind rises where there's only so much / and anyone with a food stamp or a rag doll / must've stolen it, maybe from me. / We're clutching at everything to keep off that wind / but it doesn't work. Big wind blowing away — / who were they, when they had names?

    • Julia Vinograd,
    • "The Go Away Wind," in Street Spirit ()
  • You don't choose poetry. You're a poet, and you're either working at it or you're going nuts. Why do you breathe? I'm not real unless I've written recently. I can feel myself slipping away.

    • Julia Vinograd,
    • in Street Spirit ()
  • Don't look at the dying; / you'll only encourage them. / The homeless, the hungry, the hurting, / they're not really there / and it's not polite to stare. / ... / Pretty soon the cops'll clear them / all away / anyway, / and your eyes will be safe. / And when you're dying / (oh yes you will) / no one will look.
