Lost Gold

By Katje Kaase

Escape was convoluted.

Complicated chaos

But necessary mindfulness,

Because the dream was real,

Like the lost art of alchemy.

Transformation you can feel.

The world had shuddered,

Trembling turmoil.

Base metal instead of gold.

There had to be more,

So we transcended,

Tiptoed out...

And shut the door!
