                 union is called night as night
                  to understanding all one Night

from NETHER JOHN AND JOHN HARBINGER

                  Stoics Academics Peripatetics

                  and liturgical fierce adversity symbol

                  Hazard visionary ages foursquare

                  She ran forward to touch him
                  Alabaster and confess

                  Don't cling to me
                  Pivot

              Literally the unmoving point around which a body
                  Literally stop touching me turns
                  We plural are the speaker
