A Supreme Fiction


It was here

where I saw you

two years ago.


Do you still live

in the only

world that you know?


Our worlds are diff’rent,

though not –

they’re the same.


My world is fiction.

But, even that

is a name.


Wallace once called it

a supreme kind of game.


But all worlds

are one world;

all worlds,

the same.


The diff’rence between us?

In the use of a brain.


For you,

life is diff’rent;

for me,

it’s a game.


A supreme fiction rules us;

or fools us, the same.


It’s been two years

since I saw you –

two years ago.


You won’t understand this,

but, I thought you should know.
