Notes on Logos


          And lastly

        Flayed then surviving to spell their desire
        on the floor without flesh

          there are

        as bone thereafter were they. Once.

        The lovers discovered. The cold--

          such unexpected conflicts as conflicts between

        They crossed the sea You parted
        and starved of Your presence ending with laws

          an object

        Glaucon / Postumius Terentianus: Equal

        now to the words you have become, how
        did it feel then:

          and its dimension

        each detachable yes detaching
        on cue, each one ahead of you: following: all

          and conflicts between

        things being takenContextapart: how

          an event and

        did it feel then: once you've heard the asylum

          its duration.

        ticking with no: did it then feel too: like no?
