The Bakery Shop Chimney

I know its face will remain white
when I say my courage of truth
but I also know the nature of reality
will have been changed.

I know its breaths of smoke
are nothing but an illusion
still I look, and with me the universe
sees what's real within it.

I know its imagined ovens and unknowable fires
give some comfort of certainty
but the gold they provide is not bread
but mystery.

The inscrutable--changes in the face of hearing truth spoken.

And the inscrutable does not change in the face of hearing truth spoken.
