Mirrors of Intellect
by Theresa C. Gaynord
Miracles signify nothing to some; suggest nothing.
There are looming clouds that hold the purpose
of rain flecked into a world of gray by flickering
Shadows pause under street lamps, desperate to escape
a foggy night where ghostly hobos dance with liquor
bottles in the midst of a downpour, angry in the silence,
of their own making.
Windows, full blown in the disaster of public toil,
cast away personal calamities with lead-proof
glass, unshaken by the rush hour of crowded
Unscrewed light bulbs burn fingers, reddening
skin; the inconvenience of being twisted, turned,
spiraled off to cosmic cataclysm, without any
hint of resolution.
On the ninth floor, there's an urban hermit akin
to the natural process of absolute decay, where
all communication tools die deep inside, in a place,
beyond all mirrors of intellect.
