Consider all your just considerations:
One lives for the sweet salience of surprise,
Looking at the world with naked eyes
Unencumbered by routine relations.
Make room for wonders rising from the sea!
Beauty is more beautiful unframed,
Unclassified, unvetted, and unnamed,
Solely what it seems or it might be.
Discovery requires ignorance
As one sets sail beyond one's common sense,
Yearning to unveil a mystery.
