After tons of scrapped 
maxims, we're
finally onto one: 

too many true things 
tend to happen 
all at once.

But with so many components 
to what purport to be 
"the facts," 

it's no wonder 
we find ourselves
up to our necks 

in a deluge of fictions 
which suffocate 
our trust. And yet, 

as we sink 
deeper down in that 
speculative morass, 

just look at how 
filled, one by one, 
we become

with a feverish
resolve to start 
babbling afresh 

some new story 
all about what we had done 
to deserve this.
