    You said, “They’re harmless dreamers and they’re loved by the people.”M”What,” I asked you, “is harmless about a dreamer, and what,” I asked you, “is harmless about the love of the people?—Revolution only needs good dreamers who remember their dreams.”

    the whole field is a
    white desire, empty, a single stem;
    a cluster, flower by flower,
    a pious wish to whiteness gone over—
    or nothing.
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
