I listened carefully.

It was the crucial act of Dr Percy
At least for these eyes to show
us the desolate decline of love
In the world.
Showing us the daring adventure of
Human relations
The quicksand of our mental
And that self possession can be
Even the Moviegoer filled withdeep life illusions Ends with an 
I and a thou
We are that I and thou
That’s the mystery
It’s nuff for this one reader

“Allie and Will“ dialogues
Poems of illumination 
Out of the dark cave into the illumined light of love.

“ deep might call unto deep”
