“None of these things made me feel at all cast down. It was as though they happened to someone else, and I merely watched them.” —Way of a Pilgrim

“If we differentiate things according to their differences, everything is different from the other. If we consider things similar according to their points of similarity, there is nothing which is not the same.” —Kuo Hsiang

Say the words you
Want me to say,
Whisper them into
My ear, the right words,
The holy words, the words
You want me to hear.
Cast away the present tense
The parting child constrains,

Build and forge the dying
Cause, the onward human
Breed, the wearing thin

Abrasion night in silent serpent
Creed, the mother’s fight against
Her chance decline, whose

Dominion liveth for ever,
Hold fast unto these righteous
Words and dole them out

According to their need.
Say the words you
Want me to say,
Tell me what we must
Do, to flail the ways
That come between us,
And fulfill their partial meanings
Until no empty cup remains.
