That it May Start in Balance

In order that it may start in
balance, we can see only
a small part of the total universe-
that mystery greater than death;
and for the sake of balance, we can
see how love disintegrates and by what
means and at what time it was created.
Crossing the boundaries of physics,
reaching the final barrier of knowing.
