Idiots Have Stolen the Moonlight

These are bad times.

Me at my foulest, the song of me, me in the haunted

Woods of my own condition, a solitaire but never alone.
These are bad times. Idiots have stolen the moonlight.
They cast their shadowy pomp wherever they wish.

–Mark Strand (from Dark Harbor, XXIX)
