Truth Of Wrongs


the living weight
of a meaningless phrase
repeated one too many times
forms a truth of wrongs
unable to turn right

  7. Amazing illustration, and your words are as compressed as a diamond, a strong and shaking thought in that 'truth of wrongs...' there seem to be a lot of those out there just now.

  9. My kind of poem. Creative compression, an impressive twist of words that echo long after the poem.

  13. there is an excellent piece of wisdom in this. a lesson worth holding onto. the idea that there is no reconciliation in untruthful words meant to deceive.
