"After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
"The trouble is, humans do have a knack for choosing precisely those things that are worst for them."
-Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone; JKRowling

When silence reigns,
when even the moon has set
and each breath of air stings,
cold and pure
from the stillness of high night
When any light thrown carelessly
seems profound
When I can reach back for my memories
caredul not to let my shaking hand
knock over my mug of common sense
on its way to the black shelf
Reaching for memories
scarcely remembered correctly
