Or Yashar direct light; small alef Yitro 1

From the Outsider

He’s an add-on
As if we could not receive the teaching
until he had joined us.

How we brought him in is an us-and-them problem;

What he taught —
how to bring it down
its implications and inferences;

Outside becoming inside.

From some outsiders we received only tsouris
from other outsiders
wisdom beyond measure.
