Anais Nin

Anais Nin
Speaking with Henry Miller
Part Six


“June
is evil,”

Fred said.
“June
is bad
for you.”

“She is
not bad
for you,
Henry,”

I said.
“Her lies,
her unnecessary
complications
as you call
them,

interest
the writer
in you.

Novels
are born
out
of conflict.

She is
so busy
living

that she
never
took time
to listen
to you,

to
understand
you.

June
will be
good
for your
novels
,

and
I will
be good
for you.”
