Look through the image: see through to the life.
The prettiest figure will fall into place,
and fashion reveal but a homely face
transmogrified to a symbol of strife.
The image's aim's as sharp as a knife
plunged into the heart, quickening the pace
of a transient world, leaving a trace
that smothers truth, and everywhere runs rife!
Look through the image: see through to the flesh
and build your values on a firm foundation.
The world of image is imagination
turned loose, as flames will take turns to refresh
the fire that leaves a wasteland, where what grows
anew, what pushes through, the truth it shows.
