Even though we sit slightly a
Part of us
Is connected

Despite the closeness
Exceptions can be made
Releasing us from the need
(Must?); The honour we show in being
Inactive till our skin we choose to

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
