poetry fragment: dangerous

fragment of poetry (seems appropriate to type up at this time):

I will tell you
desperate truths and dangerous
lies – or the other
way around — and you will never
know one from the other, which is just
as it should be.

Pursue me, and I will scatter
pieces of my self
in your path,
a distraction
so that you forget
what you were chasing.

About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    Wow. And I don’t think that is a fragment. It stands on its own, and on its own it is wow.
