Bridge of Sighs looking lovely tonight.
(adj.) Focusing on the petty or trivial.
For brick and mortar breed filth and crime,
With a pulse of evil that throbs and beats;
And men are withered before their prime
By the curse paved in with the lanes and streets.
And lungs are poisoned and shoulders bowed,
In the smothering reek of mill and mine;
And death stalks in on the struggling crowd—
But he shuns the shadow of oak and pine.
Nessmuk (George Washington Sears)
This my friend, is a pint…
I’ve thought about running away more as an adult than as a child.
If there is any justice in ageing, this will be me someday.
