The name of Nicodemus is circumference.
He taught that all is not constructed like an onion. Our many-chambered world
charged with sweet juices,
its multitudinous centers like seeds
is of the perfect forms, more an orange.
And three things there are having extension:
Silence. Language. Light.
Often at twilight or dawn he walked the edge of fields, his mind spread out.
Nicodemus lived inside and outside himself like laughter.
