Title: The title is taken from Carl Sandburg's wonderful poem, 'Nights Nothings Again'.

I have wanted kisses my heart stuttered at asking,
I have pounded at useless doors and called my people fools.
I have staggered alone in a winter dark making mumble songs
to the sting of a blizzard that clutched and swore.
It was the night in my blood:
  open dreaming night,
  night of tireless sheet-steel blue:
The hands of God washing something,
  feet of God walking somewhere.
- Carl Sandburg, 'Nights Nothings Again'
