That’s The Truth

‘That’s the truth.’ And yet it’s not.
Part invention, part forgot,
Part embroidered by the weaver—
Memory, that warped deceiver,
Spinning, spinning in our head
Yarns of non-existent thread.

Tasselled falsehoods: ‘You were king.’
We know we were no such thing:
Fabricated recollection
Loops the truth with false perception,
Spinning, spinning joy and wrath,
On a non-existent cloth.

LONDON, 2006
