We will be honest about our dishonesty
weave a fiction,
make use of hindsight,
be careful of the tale we are telling.
Pick it apart,
this is the moment that defines me,
but this cannot appear in the story.
We are selective regarding inclusion
plaster over the cracks,
paint the desired picture carefully,
thinking about propriety.
We will tell it warily
if tell it we must and
protect those who live in the past with us.
