Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
There's something dream-like to me in the imagery and rhythm of these lines. Ending an all-night meditation, balanced in that realm between waking and sleep, reality becomes fluid and luminous. That's when a poem like this just feels right.
The couplet that keeps calling me back:
Some you inspire with the madness of prostration:
They cannot tell their heads from your door.
Have a beautiful day!
