is the difference
between nontoxic and delicious
(or, depending on the particular truth,
between toxic and delicious:
perhaps cyanide is irreparably sweet).
There is good reason, in my
for most medicines to taste
If truth were beauty,
we would tell no (lies) fantasy,
I hope you do not trust me because
I choose my words well,
and place them just so,
If that were all you needed-
and here I speak to every last you who listens-
then you would vote only poets as presidents,
and we would find ourselves bombed to shit and back.
