    Forgive the violation of the one-a-day rule, but I thought you'd
      all enjoy this poem by Mark Doty. By weaving an account dreadful
      happening with a mythology, it creates a worthwhile subjective
      spin that redeems the dreadfulness.  And incidentally, employs an
      unusual Milton reference:

      

    . . . (I want to spell long  
    with two n's, as Milton spelled 

      dim with a double m 

      to intensify the gloom of hell)
