The Pilgrimage, Book II: Part 30 / Phillip Neal Tippin

Certain ways,
In time,
The metaphors! The metaphors!”
   (“The doors! The doors!”)

Grow to watch aging

The distractions of the soul
The distractions of the body

Think with an IV
   (It’s like we rely on continuously supplemented thought)

I’ve sent you a list of my sin
To destroy it as you see fit.
            Naaman and the king of Israel
