Chapter 76: The Battering-Ram

May Truth reveal itself
In moth-fed predilections,
Furnished by the wealth
Experience conditions.
So we do it!

I can't conceive your eyes,
But I don't care --
Maybe another day.

In all, precedes a form,
A wall of indivision,
A cold protecting warm
In palpable commission.
And so we charge ahead.

Behind it all, amassed,
Tremendous life,
Or so I see in you.

But take, take, take, take, take, take, take it easy!
Now believe each fateful sight!
A wonder in every fold,
A truth waiting to be told!

A youth who steals the path
From timely revelation,
When sorrow takes it back,
Dies in observation
Of the only Truth.

I can't conceive your eyes,
But I don't care.
Maybe another day.
