Not Be Essence That Cannot Be



                Wild-Woman & The Closeness Of The Gasp


                                  IT IS THE WORDING      3
                justice/  it sweeps      the     Heaven    &
         earth      the land is forced
                                     to eyesight (reality)
    Pure  true     the Mind   the  second  of   growing life

                               I embrace   the
                                        conduct
                         the function
                     of original nature
            the desire of looking on the
          gold fluid the strength always exists
        it
      is
    for ever

                         where is the time of trapping
                     the effect of being
                 the lump    of
      death?      slow     it     is   in    china

   so far        away.

                                   I stir
                                   then in
                                   the mystery
                                   of the
                                   breath a
                                   belief a
                                   gasp a
                                   taste of
                                   the Name the
                                   long dazzling
                                   sound like
                                   plucking with
                                   the holy
                                   fingers
                                   I have had
                                   my day
                                   often &
                                   the inner
                                   light has
                                   been
                                   excessively
                                   Christly
                                   I think it
                                   has irrigated
                                   the world.

             what a flood the 2nd time.   speak
                                              in the place of
                                shocking love
