Tower of Babel

Tower
of Babel
I will not
mourn your fall.

Hoary
heights
profane
the sky.

Humiliation
will cure
your false
pride.

Tower
of Babel
I will not
mourn your decent.

Gaudy
spectacle
blinds
searching eyes.

Destruction
of illusions
will unveil
the light.

Tower
of Babel
I will not
mourn your fall.

 

The Shadow of the Self

The shadow
of the self
remains hidden
in darkness.

Guarded
and preserved
by egotistical
pride.

Enabled
by self-delusion
and little
white lies.

Dare
that I look
darkness
in the eyes.

For it is me
that I see
which cowers
and hides.

Excreting
shame
in the absence
of light.

Hidden
only from
willfully blind
eyes.

Revealed
only by senses
which see
without sight.
