* {{The Alcoholic}}: Drink would eventually become his undoing.
* {{Infant Immortality}}: Purposefully averted. A handful of his poems (''A Refusal to Mourn the Death, by Fire, of a Child in London'' and ''The Conversation of Prayer'', to name a couple) deal with dead children.

* {{Slap Slap Kiss}}: He would sometimes have to restrain his wife Caitlin when she grew rowdy at social functions.
