“Don’t be scared of your hunger. If you’re scared of your hunger, you’ll just be one more ninny like everyone else.”
– “Olive Kitteridge,” Elizabeth Strout

 

“And so, if this man next to her now was not a man she would have chosen before this time, what did it matter? He most likely wouldn’t have picked her either. But here they were, and Olive pictured two slices of Swiss cheese pressed together, such holes they brought to this union – what pieces life took out of you.”
– “Olive Kitteridge,” Elizabeth Strout

 

“She had even tolerated having to take armfuls of groceries and armfuls of babies around to the back door because he hadn’t built those damned steps. Building the steps whould have been such a simple thing. He could have done it. He should have done it. The not-doing spoke volumes.”
“The Fire Shut Up In My Bones,” Charles Blow

“Cigarette”

Fred Jones was worn down
from caring for his often
screaming and crying wife
burning the day but
He couldn’t sleep at night for fear that she
In a stupor¬†from the drugs that didn’t
ease the pain would set the house ablaze
with a cigarette.
