May 30, 2016




it can be confusing, at times

you start to think youre crazy

(or that they might be lying

but thats not really possible

could they be less honourable

than you hope you are)

so many things not being quite

as you remember them to be

(she said something different here

he died two days earlier there

some say you acted as you didnt

history is just ever so slightly off)

that you cant quite be certain

of anything you might think


except that as confusing as this is

wherever you might be is home



Written in response to the death of Morley Safer,

whom history will record as having died May 19, 2016.

And yet for the two days prior I remember

remembering him dying on May 17, 2016.
