Semi-True Stories

My life is based on
a semi-true story,
three paragraphs, never
long enough to
be boring.

No particular setting,
place or time.

It has its fair
share of villainy,
auxiliary heroes,
reconcilatory
rogues.

Colour palettes
auburn as autumn,
home to kingdoms
I can single out for
their stonework
alone.

Political under
tones bordering on
the mass graves of
broken men

beyond
the walls that
harbour

a city-state of
xenophobes.

“Maybe he’s in
collusion with
these revolutionaries,
as they call
themselves.

All they are,
really, are
lepers.”)

Maybe I’m based on
this hapless
delusion,

but I won’t
spoil the ending- just don’t
watch the movie
first,

the book is always
better.
