The Letter-Man: Coincidence…

      

*

The English letter ‘Eye’ seems an almost exact equivalent

of the old style Hebraic Yod.

Its close relative ‘Jay’, in Hebrew, has been subsumed in the same form.

*

English capital ‘Eye’, the higher self, links heaven and earth.

Our capital ‘Haych’ unites horizons.

Perhaps, it also allows us to hurdle them?

*

If the story of Abimelech, king of Gerar, is to be believed,

the Hebrew Heh appears to allow access

to the inner realms of consciousness, specifically, dream.

*

Although we tend to think of our dreams as personal and private,

it also appears that this inner realm is generic.
