    This is The End—of the Beginning.

    I was a fire-breathing Catholic C.O.,
    and made my manic statement,
    telling off the state and president, and then
    sat waiting sentence in the bull pen
    beside a Negro boy with curlicues
    of marijuana in his hair.
    —Robert Lowell (1917–1977)
