in the church of the blind the one-eyed are saintsthe multiverse before me spreads.on this vast strand of cosmic threadsmy soul now stands in joy and dread.lost and found in goddess' hands;on this vast strand my soul now stands.by ignorance i am struck dumb.i, insensate (deaf, blind and numb),must contemplate; the myst'ries plumb.as is and is not variegatei, insensate, must contemplate.
