Untitled (From a handful of dead thoughts…)

From a handful of dead thoughts, from the chaos of yesterday
I have made a new world
Light and Darkness I have split - 
The old riddle with a new answer to it
My children run terrified
From the tree of Knowledge
Timid as a first instinct
Or a first lover.

Two ideas kissed in my mind
Male and female
See I have made a new world.
In the mirage.
A solid image.
