Arc to Circle


“All that is not given is lost.”
Yet given and unreceived—blessless.
An untended arc of contact
will float near the edge and crush of darkness.
Reopen . . . connect . . . ignite . . . light.

“All that is not given is lost” is a quotation from
the rickshaw wallah/runner at the end of the film, “City of Joy”.
