46 – Shamefully Distorting History

Quantum leapfrogging the ripples spreading across this old pond

as when aliens tune in the feed

squeezing cyclical lies to make them fit the square of patriotism

To forget shame the historian wrote “the end”

revisionism the new solipsism, I am what I say I was is a full-time job

The deeper we dig the more archaeology makes a good novel

all too easy is her middle name (I leapt) is the most fun you can have for one dollar

writing in a name for your unknown father in hope of getting one more chance to deal

so high and wild he’ll never have another

Creating histories in Canada teaches that history shamefully distorts

I am writing backwards the most banal landscape into a utopian wonder
