Rassamutan In Time Reversed

Rassamutan is one of my oldest fantasy poems, and combines the story of Merlin, who lived backwards in time, and Nostradamus – who wrote predictions of the future. It is a poem that deliberately plays with words and meanings to set the mood for the questions it leaves unanswered.

In dreary dark seclusion
lives the monk called Rassamutan
Sitting at his desk of papers
writing for the future lore

Of the castles and the dragons
and the Liege of which he owes to
favorite scribe on bread and water
writing ancient
of the past

To the future generations
full of wild conglamorations
if they smile, think a while
or linger in his ancient work

And they wonder — Rassamutan
wasn’t mixing some strange potion
for the future
what was written
eer the past
was what to come

For in life – he lived but backwards
and the figures that were figured
didn’t figure Rassamutan
writing in his
ancient book
