An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clasp its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress.

~William Butler Yeats, Sailing to Byzantium

the void within
as the evening twilight fades away
within me is the cold
in the eye of the tornado
