Meditations in an Emergency

Turns out, there’s a passage from some TV series where the book, and a quote, are used. Doesn’t make the text any less of a remarkable, slim volume of poetry from a certain era.

Further exploration on the interwebs revealed wasn’t even a quote, just a title.

“I am the least difficult of men. All I want is boundless love.”
