Disability and the Onion

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

The skin of the onion is the measure of his glory. But his skin is imperfect, a humiliation, a hundred layers of anguish. The onion is a kind of library, an archive of failures. Explore. Peel away the layers. See Aristotle waving five roses at sunrise. See Cain who goes on killing Abel. See Algebra. See the coins of Silesius. Damned if you can’t see everything. This is a sufficient way of knowing, immortal. Say whatever you want.
