No Book

No book has been written
that contains the whole truth.

The whole truth cannot be told
in words.

Or close the book
And wait for another
Or close the book
Because of its cover

Or because you prefer
Only love lyrics
Or because slant rhyme
Gives you ear aches

Or because it’s written
By an unknown author
Or because “all language
Has lost its power”

Or because the beauty
Of the perfect rose
Instead of some statue
Is what you chose

[one of my oldest unpublishable poems recited from memory]
