Mantis Grasping Heaven

Poetry and Art by J. Mazzaroth

Jason's Drawing of Mantis Grasping Heaven
Great sage seeking Heaven,
Reach up and drag down the sky.
Tear down the gates between substance,
Capture the force of the lantern fly.
Use your absorbing executioner’s strike,
Leave no foe unvanquished.
One-thousand dead in the yard,
Your Chi touch never anguished.

I will be reading this poem live at Inkwood Books on May 19th between 7PM and 9PM during an open mic. Feel free to join me there.

Hi. I'm Jason. I like to start too many projects. I embrace the concept of failing fast and often, perhaps a little too naturally. With the help of my friends and family, I was able to become a leader in computational quantum physics AI and now I'm the Chief Technology Officer of a pharmaceutical company, Bound Therapeutics. Everyday I try to make the world a better place. In my blog, Simply Jason, my primary focus is on poetry, but I'll share with you my other musings, too. You can also follow me on Facebook or Twitter.
