RUE - Carl Scharwath

Oppressive delusions

begin to serenade the mind.

Backward glances, unfinished as

Blurred visions whirl with pleasure.

Transparent and wavering

memories of water evaporate

in a sky transfigured.

Damp hands summon in remorse.

Alchemy transmutes a life of meaning

to splintered icons beneath the earth.

A telephone rings somewhere

and re-calibrates the universe.
