I think of Saarikoski who died young from drink though there was the world…

planet of the blind

Though there was the world—a phrase fit for the Romans
(Who ran from their houses in dread
Who ran home again…Lucretius:
“A man leaves his great house because he’s bored
With life at home, and suddenly returns…”)

Up river a house
In which one can be both inside and out…
