The Novelist Portent


In The Living Air, Masiela Lusha
writes: We stalk the truth / As poets

She's right. We do. We seek a truth.
Or, we know a truth - we weight it
to understand, to expose, or share -

to shine a light, if not
on one (or others) -
then an act, a place

hidden from this world's face.

We work in spurts of inspiration
often against a grain for
fleeting thoughts that deeply stain.

Words are not always nice.
People are seldom truthful.
The Truth can be .. less than wanted.

A world unweighted, lost in sway.
