hear the thud of truth falling in an empty forest / one truth / after another
truth drops when ripened / predictable as hunger /
hearing truth / proves giving and receiving is possible /
silence / no one listening / or someone saying I heard nothing / proves
fear / is real /
/ a crowd listening / hoping someone will say what to do / is
fear / repeated again and again / history / hostility harnessed /
what have I to do with what is believed? / what have I to do with truth ?
I have not been taught to persuade / am easily distracted from trying / and likely to settle for nothing
/but now/ at this time/ truths drop like fruit heavy on our heads/ the windfall abundant
the fruit of fiery times / if this heavy seed falls and no one hears it / is there truth?
yes, there is piercing truth / there is evidence
listen / to what is /done/ there is the sound of truth /
