he sat and thought about obedience
he had resolved that, of the two kinds,
the kind that takes every message of order, rule, law as error
that everybody who passes along these messages
that loathes the buildings
that contradicts the inner voice
that resists, in short, was his
and the other kind...
how could it be?
