Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; . . .
sparrow puts all his
saying . . .
Her e-mail inbox always overflows.
Her outbox doesn’t get much use at all.
She puts on hold the umpteen-billionth call . . .
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil . . .
The Goddess who created this passing world
Said Let there be lightbulbs & liquefaction

Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly? . . .

that belief about suffering . . .
