Gunnar Ekelöf on the Un-named

It has no name, no place, no kind

I can't call it, I can't explain it

It is what gets a name when I call

It is what gets a meaning when I explain

It is this--but before I have yet called

It is this--but before I have yet explained

It is this which still has no name

What has got a name is not something else—

- Gunnar Ekelöf, The Gymnosophist
