"I heard a preacher say recently that hope is a revolutionary patience; let me add that so is being a writer. Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up."
— Anne Lamott (Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life)

I watch my crinkled hands
Grow soft like teacakes,
But before I died
I kissed him like nobody else
And, father, did it taste so
so sweet.
