She is reading his scribblings aloud as he does her hair, and it sounds to him like something all unique and full of biblical harmonies and hard knuckles of truth. He wonders if all writers feel like prophets. He can feel his ears munching on his own words as she reads them. He can hear himself roaring and saying things he didn’t know he knew.

—Jasper John, The Holy Book of the Beard
