This page is mostly for my own reference for the character, and is not organized in a pretty fashion:

 The Tao that can be followed is not the eternal Tao.
 The name that can be named is not the eternal name.

 The nameless is the origin of heaven and earth
 While naming is the origin of the myriad things.

 Therefore, always desireless, you see the mystery
 Ever desiring, you see the manifestations.

 These two are the sameó
 When they appear they are named differently.

 This sameness is the mystery,
 Mystery within mystery;

 The door to all marvels.

 lying on the floor
 four stories high
 in the corridor
 between the asphalt and the sky
 I am caught like bottled water
 the light daughter
 I wonder what you look like
 under your t-shirt
 I wonder what you sound like
 when you're not wearing words
 I wonder what we have
 when we're not pretending
 it's never-ending, haven't you heard?
 I don't need to tell you
 what this is about
 you just start on the inside
 and work your way out

 we are all polylingual
 but some of us pretend
 there's virtue in relying
 on not trying to understand
 we're all citizens of the womb
 before we subdivide
 into sexes and shades
 this side
 that side
 and I don't need to tell you 
 what this is about
 you just start on the inside
 and work your way out
