Rose Menendian: The Catalyst

The catalyst
is love
or man
could never face
the chaos
of his self.

Love is
the catalyst
or saints
could not endure
the trial of paradise,
the tension of despair.

Between the self
and saint
a world
is amassed.
By default
it is blessed.
Love is
the catalyst.

Rose Menedian

Ararat Quarterly, 1968
