From Tokinish

byJames Thomas Stevens
Sepuo? Is there a river?
Toyusquanuo? Is there a bridge?
Is there a bridge to that part of you, besides the one I call my own? If in
definition, a bridge connects two isolated points, then we must decide when
I reach to you, which body is isolated. Or is isolation a mutual thing. If in
its isolation, there is no recognition of its being "alone," no desire to
become part to another, who rightfully calls it "island"?
