Falsifying To Get To The Truth 2007

        Falsifying To Get To The Truth

I try to feel the self that lies

Behind the eyes.

Lying here in bed one tries,

Requiring

Words at first –

And acting too,

As if the state were true

Already.

Body-tired, it’s easier.

One’s no desire

To run and play.

It isn’t easy, but at least

I’m calm today –

Enough to make myself receptive

To a state I’ve had, albeit

Fleetingly.

It waits for me

The while I falsify

To get at truth.
