Clouds At Sunset Over the Catalina Foothills — Image by kenne

Want in a person
is like hunger in a dog, Spinoza
probably would not say.

His wakeful, solitary
reasoning plainly outstrips
my wildest intuition.

Yet insofar as my heart
is a boot with a hole in it, I think
this is what writing could be

—what he calls Nature,
an existence no longer borne
as means or ends.

— from Spinoza Says by Sandra Lim
