Durable as the atom, heartless as the earth itself

“Supposing I do give her a fuck, what then?
What have I got to say to a girl like that?
What’s a fuck when what I want is love?
Yes, suddenly it comes over me like a tornado…”

    I’m a big Henry Miller fan. But its been years since I read him. Can’t imagine him being on a high school english course.

      Do they have him in high school reading courses? I don’t remember that, seems more like college level. He is for sure in my top ten.
