Days

What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?

Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.

– Philip Larkin

Both religion and science will go to spectacular ends — indeed, only exist — to solve the question of days, a question that will, at some unspecified point in one’s life, be answered immediately.

Where Am I?
