when, in the course of four

mountains, one encounters the

four winds, and the four directions

by which they came;

when you descend from the perfect-union

into the well of stars to find the cell-singing

mountain bending beneath your feet;

 

when, in the course of four

sky-strings, you let go and

fling yourself off this earth

engine; and open every door.
