An explanation for the blog's title

For anyone who is curious, the title of my blog is from one of my poems.


None Other

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
             vastly broadening
one’s open composure, a gathering
             in being gathered.
