Swooping In

“Discontented with everyone and discontented with myself, I would gladly redeem myself and elate myself a little in silence and solitude of night. Souls of those I have loved, souls of those I have sung, strengthen me, support me, rid me of lies and the corrupting vapors of the world: and you, O Lord God, grant me the grace to produce a few good verses, which shall prove to myself that I am not the lowest of men, that I am not inferior to those whom I despise.” Charles Baudelaire, “At One O’clock in the Morning”
