    But always and sometimes questioning the old modes

    Standing tall in tubers, invading and smashing the ritual
    Parlor, demands to be met on its own terms now,
    Now that the preliminary negotiations are at last over.

    The universe is the externisation of the soul. Wherever the life is, that bursts into appearance around it. Our science is sensual, and therefore superficial. The earth, and the heavenly bodies, physics, and chemistry, we sensually treat, as if they were self-existent; but these are the retinue of that Being we have.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    hands crawling out of the walls,
    hands that excite oblivion,
    like a wind ...
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
