843. Are all your debts paid?

"Son, are all your debts paid?"


Father, I was heavily indebted

To my friends

For their sublime

Appreciation and admiration.

But I have paid all my debts

With my ceaseless gratitude.


Father, I was deeply indebted

To Ignorance-Night

For her constant

Attacks and confusion.

But I have paid all my debts

With my adamantine certitude.


"Son, such being the case,

I welcome you

To share

My Infinitude."
