”For inherently language-using animals, managing the relation between one’s attained and unattained states (call it one’s self-relation) must involve managing one’s relation to one’s words.” Stephen Mulhall, The Great Riddle, 85.
“In the pursuit of universal sameness, whether scientific or aesthetic, equivocal differences keep reappearing—testament to the recurrent rhythm of likening and unlikening in the unfoldment of things.” Desmond, Voiding of Being, 62.
There was a she, come
out of the blizzard to rest
on my book. She sang.
She turned and danced, looked
me in the eye. Black and white,
she held it open.
I said, ”You’re Grammar,
right? We will marry, have kids.”
She said, “You got that
right. I need your love.”
She bobbs and coos and keeps my
heart young and racing.
