truth

truth

it seems long since
i accosted the
strange-eyed god.
and, o, the gifts
that he gave me:
all
have brought some joy, and all some pain:

but the worst–the best–
is sight.

This does seem strangely apropos to me in light of current events–as pure irony–but then I’m prejudiced, I wrote it.  It was written as irony in the first place.  Well, not pure; I try to cram as many meanings into each line and word as I can.
