« All The Things You Are [by Lewis Saul] | Main | from "Julius Jaffe: The Poems" [by Mitch Sisskind] »

The works of Wm. Shakespeare and J. S. Bach do not seem humanly possible to me. It's like entering the sublime.

“Even if those in authority are evil or without faith, nevertheless the authority and its power is good and from God…. Therefore, where there is power and where it flourishes, there it is and there it remains because God has ordained it.”
― Martin Luther, Commentary on Romans

left the house

of coming back
ten hours later
