Mags Mental Contagion
Zdravo! Kako ste?
by Dean Pajevic

Waking Again

Old elders of earth
share a secret with me:
the THINGS that you love,
disappear like a dream.

Because we're not machines,
we're monkeys in trees,
scrambling up towards fortunes,
stunned by mortality.

Help me walk in this fire,
past the pain to the power,
and see stars in the darkness,
find honor in hours.
