The scale of reason

the scale of reason
it’s size and shape

falling like fruit
through branches
falling like a stone
inside an avalanche
falling like a comet
into a star

trapped like an animal
free inside a stampede
beautiful like a jewel
ugly like a meteorite
falling onto dry land
starting a fire
falling onto rain soaked land
to expire

trying to catch
the fireball of reason
trying to hang on
to a unicorn

the unicorn
leads the way
through minefields of unknown aggressiveness
over lands divided by many rising rivers

the unicorn
leads the way
through the slaughterhouses of affections
across the race track of our minds

and coming into its homeland of love
our reason brings us home
