Out of the garden.

"I only intended that you need never be content with nothing."
-God to Adam upon the Expulsion. Par Lagerkvist, 'The Eternal Smile', p.65 (trans./ed. Hill & Wang Pub., 1971)

The purpose of a white curtain is to remind the fortunate of
The wind that visits the window.

And to the displaced, there is a cheery friendship in the pleats of

The mechanics of breathing and getting used to it have only ever failed me
Once or twice.
