The King of Hearts

20170501_121453-01-02-01288031316.jpeg

Upon the red carpet
of vanity,
this slipstream
of existence,
a blur of humanity
crying ,
“What are you hiding from me?”

Up a mystical sleeve
the eye to deceive
the mind to believe
at lightening speed
shuffling the deck
Down mirrors and smoke
smoking the rope
the snakes and ladders
of love, hope, and charity.
Truth to retrieve
from the bottom of the pack
revealing the dealing
checking out with clarity
checking in to reality
As the King of Hearts,
the Ace of Time and Space,
asks the Jokers Wild,
“Why are you hiding from me?”
