Exile 2




I spy on my dreams
and nightly suffer banishment.
Now exile is the thing I know best.

Insist on clarity
and they will accuse you of insincerity.

Insist on accuracy
and they'll accuse you of elitism.

Insist on truth,
and they will walk away angry.

The welcome of waking, too, is weak.

Much is said and done that makes no sense
except as an admission of madness.
