In The Ironic World - Poem by Max Reif

In the ironic world,
sunlight falls
first upon a mirror before
reflecting to our Earth.

Thoughts are buried,
not spoken, and grow
into strange trees
with mutated fruits.
Even the air

goes somewhere
before our nostrils,
I can feel it. How I long

for naive, direct days that vanished
beneath the waves with the heroes

and are waiting
within my heart
to be re-born!
