Ghazal to Find a Reason

Force of mortal and faceless reason A dark light finds no fate to reason. Of cancerous nights, an uprooted slumber Manic red luster of livid white reason. No justice refined for the everyman's token The cavalry's engine, the hum of blind reason. For heavenly voices a desperate chorus Numb as in prayer to beseech yet a reason. One summer's bright flower reborn in a shadow Calls off the late reaper, a wind of sage reason.
