Done With It

It would be enough, when the dark asks us is it the dark? if illusion were only illusion, and only the ordinary were ordinary. It would be enough, given the impossible, to have a way about it, so it would give as much as it takes to make any question understood, as one means what he thinks. It would be enough, having love and being hurt, to know wonder and not be afraid, so that if one comes to an illusion and sees it’s impossible to understand, it would be enough.
