the truth

“You can’t handle the truth!”
        – Colonel Jessup, A Few Good Men


it leaps from my mouth a giant squid
gelatinous in its own     secretions
furtive tentacles wiggle out of


you pretend to look away     ignore
the spectacle     turn up your nose
to its stink

rush to the rescue with rope and trawlers



right hand pointing — ‘the sky outlives everything’
