    Gerard Manley Hopkins
    “No worst, there is none. Pitched past pitch of grief,
    More pangs will, schooled at forepangs, wilder wring.
    Comforter, where, where is your comforting?
    Mary, mother of us, where is your relief?
    My cries heave, herds-long; huddle in a main, a chief-
    woe, world-sorrow; on an age-old anvil wince and sing —
    Then lull, then leave off. Fury had shrieked 'No ling-
    ering! Let me be fell: force I must be brief'.
    O the mind, mind has mountains; cliffs of fall
    Frightful, sheer, no-man-fathomed. Hold them cheap
    May who ne'er hung there. Nor does long our small
    Durance deal with that steep or deep. Here! creep,
    Wretch, under a comfort serves in a whirlwind: all
    Life death does end and each day dies with sleep.”
    Gerard Manley Hopkins, The Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins

    “I sit here
    drunk now.
    I am
    a series of
    small victories
    and large defeats
    and I am as
    as any other
    I have gotten
    from there to
    without committing murder
    or being
    having ended up in the

    as I drink alone
    again tonight
    my soul despite all the past
    thanks all the gods
    who were not
    for me
    Charles Bukowski, The People Look Like Flowers at Last
