The known world, part one


Science is basically an inoculation against charlatans. – Neil Degrasse Tyson

uses what we know
to understand the unseen,
as in blood signifies
the covered wound
and tears imply
the soft core
of a hardened heart.
Breath is the soul’s body.
Silence betrays the secret.
The reality of time
is disproved by sleep,
while dreams inform reality.
Many things masquerade as love
but love is a prime
that has no substitute.

©A. D. Joyce, 2014
