Intellect of Blindness

Poesy plus Polemics

"Blind Wizard" Sketch by MlleBienvenu From “Blind Wizard”
Sketch by MlleBienvenu

only the blind
hold their bearings
in darkness
remember the routes
between now and again
travel time with
success making
progress on
dismal terrain

as for we
vaunted sighted
what good
after all
is the eye
without light
not so much as a
flickering match head
no trickle of stardust

we stumble and
bump along
circular reasoning
dead of direction
a convolute world
we ourselves
worked to blacken
extinguished its points
of enlightenment

only the blind
understand how to
use special sight
rediscover the
peace and prosperity
hidden within
misused histories
ready to remake the
bright broken mind

only the blind
have the courage
to lift us from
deep in delirium
refill the vacancies
left in our learning
philosopher cowards
who nearly destroyed
our own species
