Legerdemain

August 9, 2014

To worship gods is to renew them
Their bounds filled in with lordly hues
To fall in love is only human
Some with reds and some with blues
But hearts are bound in wreathes of flames
When we breathe their holy names

The gods exist because we choose them
From among the shapes and signs
To see the truth in the illusion
There’s not a thing to hide behind
Nor a thought within the brain
That can commit them to the mind
Nor follow their legerdemain
