Example text

There is no alternative, no exception allowed: whether one arrives on time to greet the waiting doorkeeper (instantaneity), or delays and arrives later than expected (the untimely, the messianic), the implication is the same: that this is no window of chance, for this heavy structure requires a being to pry it open, a mass to stop it from sealing close. Its hinges are immobilized, though a torso is enough to match its insane pressure (to become the wedge, the strait, the conduit). Such is the ultimate “humility” described above: to “perceive oneself” as the “adornment” of this wayfare entrance, to compensate for the rusting crux, to face the all-surrendering frame of the “pure mirror” and hear the subtle cracking of one’s own bones as the selfforsaking dissonance of a border.
