The mind moves mountains, it sees
what it wants to see, illuminates
umbrageous images, throws light
upon, lifeís penumbra of pain
erases error, relocates impediments
opens passage through impossible
terrain, illustrates religious vision
adds dimension to literal meanings
discovers gold in Hellís geology
black holes in Heavenís astronomy
encircles Pandoraís crypt
with a Galilean net, expiatory mesh
to ensnare wicked propensities
return them to their box, to provide
an exit from slavery of corruption
and finally, the mind unleashes
our Prometheus, to set the world aflame.
