    what are we,
    The beast that walks upright, with speaking lips
    And little hair, to think we should always be fed,
    Sheltered, intact, and self-controlled?
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    the ghosts of the tribe
    Crouch in the nights beside the ghost of a fire, they try to
    remember the sunlight,
    Light has died out of their skies.
    —Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)
