52.       THE SOUL AS DRUMMER

In it lies our identity
like an individual party
which strike coded drums
from which intelligence hums
as the driver of a hansom
which holds the physical mind random.

The soul drums a double beat
that of our instinct and creation
formulated with the spirit’s justice
to the particular occasion
which necessitate cognition.

These drums are not perfect
as love’s perfect ness
issues the truth’s affect
to the soul’s music
which drums the beat
of the physical mind.
