rationalism falls short in the use of reason


 

Rationalists:
…intellectualize
the potential of reason
in the face of faith
in the presence of wonder
and raise obstructions
to barricade themselves short
of the fully spiritual
and work set limits
to the bone
without the consolation
of the limitless
the boundless
the fathomless
and like jalapenos
strung out in the sun
run their Spirit dry
and mistaken the hot and the spicy
for the zest of life
with burning conviction

…sweet in the delusion!


Human Potential and Its Shadow
