Being Strangers

Perhaps knowing each other is overrated. Maybe acceptance, forever being strangers, is better.

Whereas knowledge goes through the prism of our own biases, acceptance is present, diverse, and whole...forever true.

Acceptance maybe far better than knowledge--darkness better than light.

Consider e e cummings' "if strangers meet."

if strangers meet
life begins-
not poor not rich
(only aware)
kind neither
nor cruel
(only complete)
i not not you
not possible;
only truthful
if strangers(who
deep our most are

(and so to dark)
