The gulf between
the conjured belief
the objective illusion.

the truth trussed in steel
the truth dressed in shredded silk.

they are opposites that do not attract
abiding the sulphur between them

how remarkable
when they learn each other’s land
the territory of mind
the inexplicable common memories

relinquishing masters
and identities,
they are perfectly joined.
