Love penetrates the cosmic reach
of mind, assigning virtual form
to unknown bodies, creating space
for them to dwell, as we slumber here
visions appear, dreams revealing truths
that in our waking consciousness
naively confident, in our feeble grasp
of reality, we fail to recognize
even deep psychic disturbances
that move like blooms of lightning cloud
on water, bearing witness to buried
inward experience, warping time
booming fictions, we daily create
piercing fantasies that speak to us
of anxious apprehension, of something
beyond reason, a longing to grasp
the poetic structure of our tragic history.
