in the hour of sunlight, early morning, before the mist rolls
in from the sea; and out there everything is turbulent and green.

—Frank O’Hara, from “Aus einem April” (via the-final-sentence)

For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger - something better, pushing right back." -Albert Camus

And I, infinitesima­l being,
drunk with the great starry
likeness, image of
I felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.
