The Essence of Man

He sheds light on the deepest, darkest machinations of the female imagination.

He is in command of a positive or negative phototropism.

The greatest woman in us rises with him in the east.

Our greatest hurt sets with him in the west.

Without him existence as we know it ceases.

Without us he has no earthly purpose.

He is the unnamed, unknown Muse.

The unclaimed only son of Zeus and Mnemosyne.

The known sun of our universe.

Morning star.

The essence of man.
