Under The Sun

Some fragments:

"Inside the church, pillars and vaulting
white as plaster, like the cast
around the broken arm of faith."

--Tomas Transtromer, "Scattered Congregation"

"And even as I add,
I lose, decompose
into my elements,
into other names and forms,
past, and passing, tenses
without time,
caterpillar on a leaf, eating,
being eaten."

--A.K. Ramanujan
