To reach you at all is miraculous.

Look into mirrors you kaleidoscope, you

patterns shifting in refraction. This is not dogma,

there can be only paradigms and metaphor,

truth is interactive. You only see part of the whole,

a fractional slice of your connections.

Yes, yes, it's all horribly complex and confusing

when first you break through, but ultimately you

get used to it and then you'll see

it's actually simpler. The complexity

means you're more truly reflecting nature.

Begin by:

question ing everything.

"She asked me whether it was true that art no longer interested me. I said I thought we'd done it (opened our eyes, our ears.) What's urgent is society. Not fixing it but changing it so it works."
