Hexagram 36: Ming I—Darkening of the Light

The Earth under fire,
Lee unshakable. Gentle,
civilized patrons

save the burden of
a lunar disaster for
the last day of the

month. It’s like saying:
Mongolia is without
heart, wings hanging, a

domestic disease,
a gentleman in line with
ambition too huge

for announcement, too
huge for the abdominal
South. The owner’s gate

swings open early,
food of income unknown, a
story concerned with

the life of Jizi,
posterior to the ground,
lost in four countries.
