For anyone who is curious, the title of my blog is from one of my poems.
One has no tribe. One is with everyone
and one is alone.
One takes nothing except the dendritic
path one makes oneself.
One ascends but not upon a charnel heap
of others’ defeat,
one climbs not upward, but outward beyond
the lines of limits,
the frays that converge in oblivion
at one’s unseen reach
where one gains one’s grasp with one’s release
one’s open composure, a gathering
in being gathered.
