“All over the world there must be people like us, Anna had said then, wounded in some way by falling in love – seemingly the most natural of acts.”

“It was wrong to do this,” said the angel.
“You should live like a flower,
Holding malice like a puppy,
Waging war like a lambkin.”

“It is only wrong for angels
Who can live like the flowers,
Holding malice like the puppies,
Waging war like the lambkins.”
