Tranströmer, Tomas - from Preludes II
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
from Preludes II [translated by Robert Bly]
Two truths approach each other. One comes from inside, the
other from outside,
and where they meet we have a chance to catch sight of ourselves.
The man who sees what's about to take place cries out wildly: "Stop'!
Anything, if only I don't have to know myself'"
