Splendid Isolation

Splendid_Isolation_672_446

a choice as drear as
village rap or news release
explains this place

Truth owes nothing less
and has no ownership
unless it pays

then in an eerie instant
versions of it spawn
with clear intent

by hiding way out here
I’m freed of it -
but
rarely entertained
