do not trust your instincts

The difference between truth and
beauty
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
mind,
for most medicines to taste
so awful.
If truth were beauty,
we would tell no (lies) fantasy,
and drink
only antibiotics.

I hope you do not trust me because
            I choose my words well,
and place them just so,
with
smart
and
clever
line breaks.
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.
