Duplicity

Gods and demons!
False idols imbued with qualities
we aspire to or thrust against;
Not realizing culpability,
admiring angels with blind eyes
inured to consequences.

Travel the whole world through
not discovering any unlike yourself;
and after the honeymoon’s over,
stand bereft, once again,
upon the shoals of self deception.

  1. oh Bela, this one hurts, today, here and now…Off I go to examine those shoals of self deception, lest I become inured to consequences…
    Thank you.

  2. I understand. Peace, VL.
