Reality and Illusion
In the devil's eye~
'Twas the black born
of what happened to the white;
the world ~ a pendulum,
a will-o'-the-wisp between
reality and illusion.
Have seen Jehovah within.
Thought it would seem to be extant~
mirroring in the whole fall from grace
divine seeds germinated for love~
in the light of an abstraction.
Brought back from the edge of heirloom memory~
antiquated, holy words.
