Haiku: The Truth

your costume nicely
hides the stained and terrified
person that wears it

lies have a life and death of their own, but the most truth-destroying are the ones we require ourselves to believe.

Swept Away

The great wave came and
Swept me away
Like a mote seen floating in a sunlit room
I drift now

But I also see and
Hear and
This world through which
These currents carry

I learned a thing and
Became wiser
But it made me

For am I swept now away and
There is no telling where
Or whom
I might next be
