decadent delusions turn disastrous
as the equation balances itself out.
contrived compassion begins confounding
the magician mathematician
and then there is nothing left to do but sit and wait.
in collective confusion the characters
who are the integers and the variables
are steadily shifted
from one side of the equal sign to the other.
masochistic minds and sadistic souls
dance together and trade loans
back and forth
forever and ever
on a mutilated merry-go-round
disguised as a home.
the golden ring was grabbed
dropped and smashed
broken into bits
and is beginning to be distributed out of fairness and balance.
Yet the gold and the iron feel the same to the blind.
Unappreciated for now the utterance of the ultimate goes unheeded
and the malfunctions continue to manifest in the multiverse.
The gold seeps into the bloodstream
as it melts from all the heat and pressure
changing the ones who have touched it even for a disregarded split second.
Into the veins, up the spine and into the center of their brains.
The eye opens, awakens and NOW....it awaits.
Soon the equation will only have a few select integers and variables
and all will be understood.
