covering my ears

Standard

doublespeak:
how words
twist
from opposite corners
of one man’s mouth
to braid different versions
of the same lie

I was taught
to speak singly
& simply

learned early
truth talking
does not demand
a good memory

those lessons obsolete
when we can undo choices
retroactively

spin  fiction
& call it relative truth
but not
in the Eisensteinian sense

interesting
how speech
has polarity

we do not love
with different sides
of the heart
but with both sides
fully

& that
should be
an example
for our lips

    Love it…I love the lines about not needing a good memory if one speaks the truth. Such a simple ‘truth’. :)
