A la recherche du temps perdu

"I apologize        to coincidence
I apologize        to necessity
Let happiness try to receive the dead
Apologize        to the war I steal him from
You must forgive        this veil
It’s like a laughing        time and again
I wanted to be        everything
I know nothing can justify        the veil
Be brave        Let it descend"
—  Jorie Graham, from “Underneath (Calypso)” in Swarm
