Levinas


In Memoriam


Who held himself
Totally responsible
For me for all
O he responds
No longer who
Opened to a grand
Way of seeing
Doing being
Shatterer of illusions
Sang in his saying:
Beyond quidditas
Haeceitas ipseitas
Lies illeitas
Radical alterity
In open space
Place of the Other
In a trace is
Grace of presence
Of holiness
Beyond the sacred
“God uncompromised
By Being”
By Nothing
Who beckons me
Come and see
His Face
