Heirs of Spinoza

A day late. Forgive me.

Heirs of Spinoza

Oh “good” ones,
who accept their optimal substance
as a portion of that greater substance;

if blessedness can only come
from elevation to a higher
status, some day

who, I implore,
sent Gabriel in the first place?

Is that not the perfect question?

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.
