And if the Wine you drink, the Lip you press,
End in the Nothing all Things end in - Yes

never less than one, or more


The body
is a single creature, whole,
its life is one, never less than one, or more,
so is its world, and so
are two bodies in their love for one another
one. In ignorance of this
we talk ourselves to death.

–Wendell Berry
Sabbaths, XIV
