Mindscapes


 
There falls an almighty darkness
 
in this most voracious of cities
 
but one side of the mind is not yet victorious.
 
 
 
Being on the eve, all that is plentiful is hearsay-
 
new dawn carried off by black knight;
 
students of fashion seek martyrdom.
 
 
But like clockwork the day breaks
 
glittering, aircraft set their scars across the sky
 
a show of power  
 
 
as empty  
 
to the universe beyond the stars
 
as to the barefoot peasant child.
 
 
And he plummets
 
"wheee!" down his slopes
 
on his sheet of wood named Rosebud.
 
 
He grows like a mountain
 
slides his hand across her skin
 
a show of love
 
 
as reckoned by the song of songs
 
to set one side of the mind free;
 
send doves of hope to the furthest vales.
