Pluricultural Enlightenment


Twin pupils
The portals of the thinking man
Are clouded by a veil of judgment
A hymen that eludes man
From his intercourse with beauty
Rooting man to an abominable blindness
Eluding man of appreciation of the miscellany of deed
For the fall from grace of the judgmental man
Is like the descent of Icarus
No onlooker will empathize nor rescue
For enshrined virginity transmutes the soul
To a behemoth creature
A specter rooted to majority opinions
Transfused to the blood of forefathers
Fertilized perpetually by the popular media
As the tree of judgment grows like a giant tumor
In the vacuity of his inbred blindness
Open you stitched eyelids my fellow man
Be consummated by the surrounding beauty
Live and love by the thrush of light
For you will be emancipated
Like the initial foray of a caged bird
For the advent of binocular sight maketh man
To beautify the soul with her retinal masala
For the embellishment of pluricultural enlightenment

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
