19. Apokatastasis panton

He is –
the first glass-maker, the first to love the density of things in his own image.

He is –
the snake who eats his tail, the self-consuming Flame.

He is –
the Sieve-lader, who would carry the ocean; the bat scryer, and the deaf singer.

He is –
the geometer who measures the heavens with a square circle, and One is his number.

He is –
the thrice judged, thrice damned, the Dweller in the Night.

And yet... he is – and can become.

For he was First, and will be Last to walk upon the earth and know himself: Beloved.
