That’s how it feels.
Like there is a mutual understanding between us
Through which we allow ourselves
To express emotions,
Even in its smallest forms.
Can be shared in
Without so much as a passing whisper
to Express how we feel.
I don’t even care
If my physical body
So long as he’s happy.
I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
The path to becoming an Intellectual Modern Man
"Knowing how to solve a rubies’ cube, speed-read, or memorize 2,000 randomly chosen digits (see Guide) is an exemplification of motivation, time, and patience but they are not key defining attributes of what can be considered an "Intellectual Modern Man".
The true modern man must work to embody all sectors of knowledge and derives decisions from a multitude of diverse, past experiences.”
