the ground of all being

the ground of all being is soft tissue
amorphous to the core, silent on all

matters except when not silent, when
steel settles whatever needs settling;

the ground of all being is vapor pervading
intent, silent on all matters except when

not silent, when razor bleeds whatever
needs bleeding; the ground of all being.
