Invitation to an encounter

'More important that science is its result,
one answer provokes a hundred questions.
More important than poetry is its result,
one answer invokes a hundred heroic acts.
More important than recognition is result,
the result is pain and guilt.
More important than the procreation is the child.
More important than evolution of the creation is the
evolution of the creator.

In place of the imperative steps the imperator.
In place of the creative steps the creator.
A meeting of two: eye to eye, face to face,
and when you are near I will tear your eyes out
and place them in place of mine.
And you will tear my eyes out 
and will place them inside of yours,
then I will look at you with your eyes
and you will look at me with mine.

Thus even the common thing serves silence and
our meeting remains the chainless goal;
The undetermined place, at an undetermined time,
the undetermined word, to the undetermined man.'

Written by Jacob L. Moreno
