A haunted house. Tenants unknown
Assert their squalid lease of sin
With earlier title than his own.”

“... this single span,
Reaching for the world, as our lives do,
As all lives do, reaching that we may give
The best of what we are and hold as true:
Always it is by bridges that we live.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
