When Reality Fails

Reality does not cease to exist or shrink to cede its responsibilities

As there is always a special effort to shrink it between warring minds

Sit here, along with the child, who witnesses the adult indignations

That which every day has to offer, as a gift, to an innocent child

Suppose, there are no substitutes for the imbecilic marauding of dreams

Not one ounce of repentance of entering their dreams to do this

Seize their perspectives to replace them with numerous counterfeit ones

No sense and continuing eagerness of nonsense to define actions

Promises of primaeval truths, somewhere lament the course of life

All the disorderly characteristics of bliss and misshapen reality

Compels the child to scamper towards a fast approaching darkness
