Do not mistake the fold for where we live: It overlaps the outside and the in, Suturing together, and it binds What otherwise would float and duck and dive In nexus-waves of incompleteness. Yes: It’s true that we are nothing if our minds Are not caught up in Being’s dance. The less We live to others, then the less we live. Still, there’s an Other who directs the dance: He holds it, total, in its flux and flow; It moves and waves and changes ever more. The being that is truest and most sure Yet many-pleated – life par excellence – Dwells in the folds of His eternal now.
