"Truth is stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense."
"Be careful, or you'll end up in my novel."

These are the words
That I will not write
This is the poem
That I will not pen.

This is the page
That ink will not mar.
This is the blank abyss
That color will not stain.

I will not etch it out
In words plain to see
For it is not something
One can read.

These are the words
That I will not write
For those words are useless –
Porous vessel for the meaning.
