Poetry: “Told”

Reels spin…
Light-year hearts leap
Into lachrymose pools
Infested by choir-serpents.

Confessional urge outweighs choice.

Tight-end or wide receiver?
Doesn’t really matter, either.
The transmutation of told truth:
Transformation by blind faith —
Believers need not apply.

During a late-summer soujourn in Montecatini Terme, Italy, my friend and I took a refreshing dip in this pristine pool at the Grand Hotel du Park et Regina. Thank you, Gate 1 Travel. We would have been lost without your guidance.
