the screen and the image

The Screen and the Image

How does the lamp ask the question,

“where is the light?”

The light is the function of the lamp

and the lamp the servant of the light

Pairs of semi-inseparable things

The lamp and the light

The brain and the mind

The ant and the anthill

The screen … and what?

The screen prints the image to the world

And the image is the output of the screen

Where do they meet?

The screen idly serves the image

And the image exists by grace of its master,

the screen

Who are the servant masters?

Sit at the desk and view the image

Now view the screen

They are singular. They are not dual.
