Telling Stories

Truth is at the mercy of the storyteller. Looking at the same scene for a while may mean something. It may not. You may be forced to digest the whole before witnessing the details.

They'll dangle that mobile of participles. Reach out, only to watch them spin away from you. Complete the scene at your own risk.

You may bore to the point of no longer listening, just when the truth comes out. You can listen forever and never know. Maybe they don't even know the truth.

Were you entertained? Connect facts with thread and thumbtacks. Your pushpin picture will never know.

Cue the music. Quell your fears. Heap coals of love on your antagonist.

Remorse is almost always wasted. Always care for your fiction. It was always there; you're just now recognizing it.
