June Speaks a Monologue
with Anaïs Nin

“I want
firsthand
knowledge
of everything,
not fiction,
intimate
experience only.
Whatever
takes place,
even
a crime
I read about,

I can’t take
an interest in,
because
I already
knew
the criminal.
I may
have talked
all night
with him
at a bar.
He had
confessed
what he
intended
to do.

When Henry
wants me
to go
and see
an actress
in a play,
she was
a friend
of mine
at school.

I lived
at the home
of the painter
who suddenly
became
a celebrity.

I am
always
inside
where
it first
happens.

I loved
a revolutionist,
I nursed
his discarded
mistress
who later
committed
suicide.

I don’t
care for
films,
newspapers,
‘reportages,’
the radio.

I only
want
to be
involved
while
it is
being
lived.

Do
you
understand
that,
Anaïs? “
