eye wood, but–


you can say what you want

and what you believe–

out it

and shout it

and wear it on sleeve,

exhort it,

report it,

in-depth or in brief–

declare it

and swear it

from rooftop and eave,

state it

orate it

in welcome release,

feel it,

and seal it,

yet always appeal it

appending three-letter reprieve:

take a deep breath

that borders a sigh,

add the term:


to all you imply,

to wash white on words

and make them a lie,

to cast doubt on first

and play either side,

to know right, but wrong,

and thus justify

retractions, redactions

and subsequent actions,




in aside….
