no person or persons

I’ve been clumsy lately, putting too many things in my hands and then dropping them. My schedule is like that too. Am I supposed to be somewhere in addition to where I am right now? I can add things but I can’t subtract them, I have to do my taxes. Have I hurt your feelings too? There are small emergencies constantly threatening that I won’t mention. They’ll happen or they won’t. It might be silly to expect something to emerge from an emergency, something good or new, but I do.

“…no habitat, no person or persons curb significantly enough my own blundering about-ignorantly-and often harmfully. You can’t intend for me to elaborate here the harm I think I’ve done. Well, I won’t.” (Diane Williams in an interview in New York Tyrant)
