Duality and Bill Murray


Me from Myself -f to banish –

Had I Art –

Invincible My Fortress

Unto All Heart –

But since Myself – assault Me –

How have I peace

Except by subjugating


And since We’re Mutual Monarch

How this be

Except by Abdication –

Me – of Me – ?

Today we read numerous poems that showed a duality in Dickinson’s self, including the above, as well as 793 where the worst disdain she can recieve comes from her own soul.  I have nothing deep to say about these things, but has anyone seen the movie What About Bob?  Bill Murray tells a joke in it that goes:

Roses are Red

Violets are Blue

I’m a schizophrenic

and so am I.
