Random Poem:

Corollary Of Society

'Tis cause for worry
when the sun flees the sky and
mother moon remains
nowhere to be seen.
And dear Samael, he
comes to borrow my chariot,
for a simple stroll through paradise.
Then the sky grows diseased,
ravenous as a whore ignored,
left to rot in her emptiness.
On the back of a matchbook,
I find this ill-gotten number.
I dial and demand answer from Keter.
And remind of a sense of
responsibility that once held the
world on its shoulders.
It seems that Malkhut
has cancer, she’s dying
slowly, as if waiting for remedy.
Seers cycles through Keda,
and proverb as well, through
Torah, and Literature alike,
if only for a reason.
Then the whorl around
the circle that is creation
ceases to spin and fades away.
And Gevorah merges with
Chesed to create,
of all things, balance.
So I think I'll catch a ride
on Sphinx and Unicorn alike,
to find my way back to lucidity.
