From Project Mailer

Following my Clue of yesterday, I am struck by present—the present tense, the present in time, and—the present—as a gift. But isn’t a present-gift our social way of saying our love flows beyond any time-unities, but socially, like the orgasm, we have to get it all in one package, one concretion, and deliver it so. So the present is the instantaneous social concretion permitted of a flowing love.
