We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
--T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding
Our most enlightening eviction,
We had every right
To squat here
Oblivious to light.
This gift, this blinding
Edifice of beauty
We took for granted, we lost sight,
Though our instructions were simple—
Before you lose it forever,
Take it down
In glorious black and white.
