I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you--Nobody--Too?
Then there's a pair of us?
Don't tell! they'd advertise--you know!

How dreary--to be-- Somebody!
How public--like a Frog--
To tell one's name--the livelong June--
To an admiring Bog!

-Emily Dickinson

what I came for
among so many who have always
lived here
swaying their crenelated fans
between the reefs
and besides
you breathe differently down here.

-Adrienne Rich
