Barter my Life, but not my Mind

“I have just realized that the stakes are myself

I have no other ransom money,

nothing to break or barter but my life.”

Diane di Prima

August 6, 1934: Happy birthday, Diane di Prima! A poet since she was a teenager, this Brooklynite became an integral part of the Beat movement and was once arrested by the FBI under an obscenity charge. She turns 79 today. (goodreads.com)
