(and my favorite, favorite poet)

In my dreams I heard a voice:
– Habib, would you like this onion
Or just a slice of it?
At this I fell into great disquiet
This enigmatic question
Was the question of my life!
Did I prefer the part to the whole
Or the whole to the part
No, I wanted both
The part of the whole as well as the whole
And that this choice would involve no contradiction.

-Gunnar Ekelöf
