    1. Sparse verses on disappearing, on endless sighs, on unbecoming, on non-existence. I particularly enjoyed the introduction.


    2. The Lost Couplets make you want to sit under a tree--at day or night? It doesn't matter--dwelling in the loss of one's self, at and as that empty place before and at the end of being, towards which one is always returning and from which one has always though never, truly departed.
