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

–Omar Khayyam

the keeper of flocks, excerpt





.


Metaphysics?
What metaphysics do these trees have?

That of being green and having crowns and branches
And that of giving fruit at their hours,
– which is not what makes us think – us,
who don't know to be aware of them.


But what better metaphysics than theirs,
Which is not knowing why they live
And not knowing they don't know?

–Fernando Pessoa
