Nice to see you.

''They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''

Judgement


Acerbic Sorcerer

Judgement is swift and brutal
As only the judgmental can deliver
Severing any alternatives
Denying possible rebuttals.

Forked tongues
Do not present
Forks in the road
A mere singularity
Allows concise
Consumption
And forgone conclusions.

Manipulate results
Until satisfaction reached
Complexities concreted
And cracks consigned
To deepest shadows
Where truth cannot exist
If unseen.

  1. It sounds like you're writing a university essay:
    Manipulate results
    Until satisfaction reached
    Complexities concreted
    And cracks consigned
    To deepest shadows
    Where truth cannot exist
    If unseen.
    That's what I seem to be doing in research it, trying to concrete the truth out of complexities.

  2. So true - truth does not exist if it is hidden. Powerful as always Anthony

  3. Powerful realities, Anthony. That last sentence about truth is sticking with me.
