    Two clashes
    of mental action
    called
    Reason and Imagination

    My mind simply contemplates
    the relations born by one
    thought to another...

    I act upon those
    thoughts
    and color them with
    bright lights
    composing them as from
    elements with ... other thoughts
    those thoughts contain the principle
    of integrity
    and so I analyze them throughout
    my lifetime
    until I can view them and
    make the two that clash into
    something tangible to understand
    yet in my view they
    become algebraical representations
    that conduct general
    results

    I break reason down until
    it's seen as the enumeration
    of quantities that are already known
    and then imagination
    carries the sum...it is the perception
    of what is valued
    those quantities are whole

    ...Reason respects the 'difference'
    and Imagination moves this flow ~~

    as we evaluate the relation

    between reason and imagination
    dare we form an equation
    to derive this quantification

    clashing elements
    of str8 contradictions
    carry the reality
    and erase the fiction
    leaving imagination
    to blossom and grow
    into the true basis
    of the poetic flow.

    but, then, you know {this}
