Poem: Trace of the traceless

After Bastami,

or who may have received it from

Abu Ali.

Here it reads in Nicholson:

Creatures equal subjects to changing ‘states’,

but some people have no ‘state’,

because his vestiges are affaced

and his essence annihilated

by the essence of another.

 Traces lost in another’s traces.
