    THE PROBLEM OF BIRTH

    A problem for whom? Well, for the born. So that from the outset the problem of birth seems paradoxically to recede and engulf everything including all bases for its being a problem in the first place. Like an abyss expanding behind me the more I emerge from it, at once magnifying and cancelling its mystery. A longest tunnel somehow wholly traversed never despite my still being in it. Whatever birth's problem, the time for fixing it seems over, or never was. The trouble is too deep, we are too much in the thick of it.
