Gravity's Rainbow

botany, shoes, books, and justice



Her skin, saffron toasted in the sun,
eyes darting like a gazelle.

—That god who made her, how could he
have left her alone? Was he blind?

—This wonder is not the result of blindness:
she is a woman, and a sinuous vine.

The Buddha’s doctrine thus is proven:
nothing in this world was created.

(Dharmakirti, 7th Century)
