BABEL


How many miles to Babylon?
Listen to the spirit language in silence Is there a voice? No human voice. Words? They are unbidden, uncalled for: All the words in the world but that we seek Unwordly, unworldly, unsounded. To get there and back again no need to count the miles but kindle the flame which flickers, falters for a candle space a candle time. Listen! - they are timeless, the smooth words flowing, Hardening to roughness: corrugations in the runnels of history.
