PT. 1: INPUT
What a fate, to be human.
Forgetful of why we are abashed.
Abashed before experience. Masters of form, with the codes and systems they culled and died for. Carried so long, down to this point, where it all drops in the dust.
This story older than time.
The last band of scientists huddled looking down into the dust where a circle was scrawled. Out of that circle came an image as if the reflection of water. From the other side Pythagoras squats at the dawn of time looking into the faces of these his children…
Beyond earth and its doings, beyond the heavens, beyond the voices of god, there is the god with no voice, this god called emptiness. Not an it, it does not exist.
It neither loves nor hates nor sleeps nor wakes nor moves nor is still. It does not change or remain the same. It is nothing yet is yet is not.
Contradiction no longer two terms canceling each other.

This condition of writing. Urge to do what cannot be.
Jack Spicer said, writers all try to write the word which cannot be written.
Warming our hands over a sputtering fire for a while in the dark.

Not an answer but reason enough. Anyway it’s already moving.
Perfect mystery, tautology.
