The first two stanzas are of greatest interest to me. They encapsulate in
very fundamental language the concept of "looking for THE ANSWER". The
usual quips about one meets in life, such as "curiosity killed the cat" and
"too many questions" are so deftly by-passed. All of the questions of
humanity are neatly encompassed, from the nature of meaning to who is
sleeping with whom. The final verse is inevitable but somehow to me is not
quite as powerful. It does, however, make it clear that none of us can
deny this "will to question". I will end my wordy comment by suggesting an
analogy to Nietzsche's Will to Power and Eternal Recurrance.
