When was the burning that of fire?When was it fear?When sorrow?That any gesture can be understood as the necessary, mostly incidental price the body pays for whatever response comespast gesture,past the body that made it:to what extent can this be said, and it be true? and it be false? Under what conditions?Under whose conditions?Thus the waves. Thus the light of the sun across them."
