The Force

 
(For those who know we are , thankfully !, Affective Beings first: before we don the guise of calculating automatons that Euro-Modernism schools us to be)
 
 

The mind runs
plim with disquiet
the heart is rent
with weal

 
the mind wanton
garners reasons
the heart only
wants to feel

 
the mind adjures
laws and treasons
the heart only craves
repeal

 
the mind burns
in its own lesions
the heart but yearns
to heal

 
the mind ebbs and flows
with seasons
the heart holds
an even keel

 
the mind bumbles
into open war
the heart demurs
in mute appeal

 
*
 
Though to both
we be beholden
and before both
though we may kneel
 
it’s the love
of the lambent
heart
 
that stays
the Juggernaut ‘s
Wheel
