All our life we are told
that our eyes are tricking us,
that there’s illusion in the reality we see.
I’ve never much cared for the sense of science.
It’s not that science is bad; no, no.
It’s that there’s a majestic beauty to the unknown,
a quirky delight in the uncommon.
There is something simply sensational in the irresponsibly insensible.
What is it we see here?
Apparently, we see the illusion of a heart
through the frame of a wedding ring.
But this is science’s sense.
Maybe, what we’re really seeing,
is the importance of devotion.
We aren’t seeing an illusion of reality;
more, reality in an illusion.
