Ayn Aytom

In my previous entry (The Beginning Of Wisdom) regarding the thieves who targeted my house on account of a plasma-TV, I wrote that there was a 2-hour separation in time, similar to the 2-year separation in time in a movie (The Lake House) I had watched about soulmates.

The difference between an hour שעה and a year שנה is the letters ayin [1] ע and nun [2] נ. The separation of the soulmates in the movie is thus characterized by the letter nun. In contradistinction, the separation of "soulmates" in my dream is characterized by the letter ayin. I wrote a poem a few years ago with both a "virtual plasma" (as the "plasma"-TV had caused my house to be targeted) and two "ayins" in it, called When Ayins Collide.

penetrating thoughtbare, elemental, experiential, evidential
material testimonies distinctly marking the matter
rigorous, rigorous the law inhabiting the arc
cleaving between secret prayers apprehended two by two
virtual plasmas of no thing, reverberating neither dark nor light
a shabbat tzadi field of life radically brilliant
in it, some ancient devotion eternally new
bursting through some remnant of female reflection
like quarks with gluons and pion strings rushing against the wind
where creating and annihilating operators run and return
nowhere, somewhere between being and not, entering and leaving
reiterating iterating, with a wondering observation
transmitting no thing, yet something
the small reaching cry of one I love in need
caught between the panes, released from the window
into my chamber like handwriting anonymously up the wall
collisions in original script, binding up the void
leaping over quantum time in bloom, perpetually present, a gate
to a land erupting letters, ashrei crossing over


[1] Ayin - "A forced-open nun (the humble servant), with a vav (Divine flux) enwedged inside. "

[2] Nun - "An oblique angle (the bent over servant), with a crown on its top."
