„I love them
for finding what
I can't find, and for loving me
for the line I wrote,
and for forgetting it“

O Taste and See : New Poems (1964), The Secret
Kontext: I love them
for finding what
I can't find, and for loving me
for the line I wrote,
and for forgetting it
so that a thousand times, till death
finds them, they may
discover it again, in other
lines in other
happenings. And for
wanting to know it,
for assuming there is
such a secret, yes,
for that
most of all.

„Work me Lord, work me Lord.
Please don't you leave me,
I feel so useless down here
With no one to love
Though I've looked everywhere
And I can't find me anybody to love,
To feel my care.“

—  Janis Joplin American singer and songwriter 1943 - 1970
