"C H I M E R A"
by Mac McAnear
 
"For there are only two worlds...your world, which is the real world, and other worlds, the fantasy.

Worlds like this are worlds of the human imagination: their reality, or lack of reality, is not important.

What is important is that they are there. These worlds provide an alternative, provide an escape. Provide a threat. Provide a dream, and power, provide refuge and pain.
They give your world meaning."

They do not exist.
and thus they are all that matters.

Like the proverbial ostrich
Head hidden in the sand
Secure, blameless, pure
Remnants in the land.

Rely on the law of physics
Or ones we’ve yet to find
No matter the proofs and tests invented
Others with a different mind.

Who is “right” in this metaphysical battle?
Chances we’ll never find out
Could be the answer unknowable
And we’ll always be in doubt.

Maybe Keats onto something
As ideas seemed to flow
Beauty is truth, he said firmly
That’s all we need to know.
