To those who’ve survived: Breathe. That’s it. Once more. Good. You’re good. Even if you’re not, you’re alive. That is a victory.

(Edited for an error in series titles.)

Several late-night poems, varyingly gentle and hard-hitting, selectively quoted. I tried to find two or three pretty or playful things about night-time and being up late, but oh well...this is what happens when one goes on a quest for understanding.
