Six Ways to Delude the Heart

My heart usually does not behave like a dog
But it gets hungry, barks and throws a tantrum.

My heart calls to the unknown skies
But always knows where to go.

It wanders through the miseries of the day
But returns to the piety of companionship.

My mind meanders on dusty, dismal paths
But when tired sleeps under the shade.

My disquieting dreams dart pell-mell in the sky
But always find a path to return to veracity.

My heart enters the depths of despondency
But always surfaces to see the light of day.

My heart is single, alive and residual,
But still needs culpable stories to beguile.

The Moral:
Let sleeping hearts lie under the table
But pacify them with crumbs of simulacra.
