”There is an immanence of the infinite that yet reserves something of the fulness of itself in such a way that no immanence can exhaust what it communicates. The immanent can betoken the beyond of immanence.” William Desmond, GODSENDS (2021), 75.
Work – in – progress
On my way to the
cove, I hear an outbreak of
something like laughter,
ducks and geese sounding
off, I’d say playfully. But
walking home at night
ing laughter sounds my weird heart
like a metaphor.
