Fact to Fiction: The Storyteller
If I must explain the robbery of my peace of mind,
I’ll plaster on a smile and see if I can find
languor of mind to do so in a manner so compelling
that you’ll never feel the horror I experience in its telling.
The unity we come to as I come to a conclusion
is a little fantasy created by the fusion
of truth and storytelling, for I never fail
to weave a pretty story out of a horrid tale.
