There is no Life or Death,
Only activity
And in the absolute
Is no declivity.
There is no Love or Lust
Only propensity
Who would possess
Is a nonentity.
There is no First or Last
Only equality
And who would rule
Joins the majority.
There is no Space or Time
Only intensity,
And tame things
Have no immensity.

Mina Loy (born Mina Gertrude Löwy; (1882 – 1966) was a Writer. poet, playwright, novelist, actress, designer, painter and a bohemian. Loy was born in London, and she was one of the last of the first-generation modernists to achieve posthumous recognition. As stated by Nicholas Fox Weber in the New York Times, "This brave soul had the courage and wit to be original. Mina Loy may never be more than a vaguely familiar name, a passing satellite, but at least she sparkled from an orbit of her own choosing".
