David carries Emily Dickinson’s poem “My life closed twice” which has a great deal of personal meaning to him:

My life closed twice

before its close

It yet remains to see

If Immortality unveil

a third even to me

So huge, so hopeless to conceive,

As these that twice befell

Parting is all we know of Heaven

and all we need of hell

David also quite likes Sydney Lanier’s “Marshes of Glynn”

Inward and outward to northward and southward the beach-lines linger and curl

As a silver-wrought garment that clings to and follows the firm sweet limbs of a girl.
