Mary Oliver
“I Go Down To The Shore

I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what shall—
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do.”
Mary Oliver, A Thousand Mornings: Poems

“Go ahead and laugh at Detroit. Because you are laughing at yourself.”
Charlie LeDuff, Detroit: An American Autopsy
