Mystic Tampering.

Some ancient wisdom
Doth behold; a parabolic
To unfold. Mathematics to 
Delight ; resemble crescent 
Moon at night! The alchemy
In this I see; a medieval
Fantasy . Behold the dragons
Tooth and claw; from it, 
Power I will draw. Mystic
Names are writ in clay; and
Swept away before the 
Day. Squalid squawks that
Screech the sky; bring chills
Into the heart that lies. 
Fingers bony, nails that
Split; do stir the cauldron
With some spit. “Hail my 
Demon, come to me”; if 
You indulge my fancy free!
Thus I challenge, this bleak
World; what’s real I order
Inward curl. Tumble down
And thus reform; a universe 
“Reductio ad Absurdum “
Is reborn!

    This is a clear indication of humans boundary in his beliefs to mystic and logical reasoning. There is so much poetic passages here, David and I love this. Appreciate so much your time of reading my poem: Glutinous Rice Cake. (^_^) Noel.
