if truth –
it’s filtered through
an unassailable hide

this route through one man’s
view suits certainty – such that
he maintains it IS that way

no true perception of reality
exists which can create
this tailor-made anxiety

in thus a dedicated life alone
there’s more to being recognised
than shouting out your name
