His real reverence for the simple objects of the everyday world, their ability to present cup, tree, and hand both as they seem and as they are with a kind of mystical iconic starkness, is a quality uniquely Mr. Crunk's. That this starkness eventually begins to warp into the surreal and ultimately windows into the Luminous Beyond, is additional sanction for gratitude." Reliquaria 1.

If I have to go below, I will grab my jug and fill it with water somewhere on the road down. Meantime, every day I pray-O Lord teach me that I am but earth, a hollow vessel of clay, only a wisp of thy breath against my emptiness. 3.
