Refuting The Truth


There’s a new direction to contend with, 
perhaps those doldrums of melancholy 
recede and we bargain with ourselves; 
it was an age of assurance-seeking - in 
actions of still far-too-remote-selves not 
willingly at hand, all wilfully denying the 
obligation to resolve the here and now
that is the sand we’d been built upon 

Now impetus exists where a vagueness 
of impasse played to an empty stadium; 
it was wasted until applause tamed that 
echo of emptiness - saying deliver your 
lines to a mirror and hear its ambiguity 
before it refutes all evidence of truth
