Rhyme and Reason

What a bore

To see the world

As it is —


The raw reality of the rationalist;

A pale counterpart

To the poetic perception

Of the vagabond.


Drained Divinity

Faded, frail figure

Once forceful –

Now insipid, irrigated

Rid of identity

Culled personality –

Dictated construct

Of morality, reality –

Pressed upon, into you

Has drained the divine

Of divinity…
