Truth Defined

If I hadn’t
Loved him
So
Much

My loathing
Wouldn’t run
So
Deep

In living color

Called to the carpet
To meet with
Prominent editor

Of finest antiquity
Gigantic Persian
Rug

The office loomed
Enormous
Intimidating

At the end of a
Brightly lit
Corridor

Heart pine floors
Substantial
Eloquent

Strong enough to
Support
Even the largest
Of egos

She held up my
Book
As I entered
The room

Smiling from her
Throne
This stuff is
Good

Closing the cover
Setting it aside
Take a seat
What else have
You got

I sat back
And grinned
Let my spiel
Rip

The sky’s the limit
When you dream
In living color

In this silence

 

Too many used to be’s
Faded away with
Time

Not enough now’s
To sustain us
Into tomorrow
