“But now my brothers and I are old enough to begin to be wise, yet still young enough to climb the cold roof to talk and to smoke.
So I will play a new game with you called:
Let’s go together and bear one another’s burdens.
At least I will not laugh at your pain,
I will not try to fix your problems,
I will not ignore your suffering or
condemn you with my piety…
I will simply lie here next to you in the cold while we breathe our smoky prayers to God.”

– Raeben Nolan
