    I have just realized the stakes are myself 
    I have no other 
    ransom money, nothing to break or barter but life 
    my spirit measured out, in bits, spread over 
    the roulette table, I recoup what I can 
    nothing else to shove under the nose of the maitre de jeu 
    nothing to thrust out the window, no white flag 
    this flesh all I have to offer, to make the play with 
    this immediate head, what it comes up with, my move 
    as we slither over this Go board, stepping always 
    (we hope) between the lines 

 - Diane di Prima 
 from Revolutionary Letters
