As if we could not receive the teaching
until he had joined us.
How we brought him in is an us-and-them problem
he gave us something additional
he brought it from
Once we integrated his depth
He earned a connection straight up and down
the direct light.
What he taught —
how to bring it down
in its applications
implications and inferences
what we would draw for ourselves.
Outside becoming inside.
From the outsider A we received only tsouris
from the outsider Y
wisdom beyond measure.
Small alef; poetry
