Shall I Tell? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Stories are a communal currency of humanity.” Tahir Shah

Shall I Tell?

Some things are worth noting
on the canvas of human life,
however lamentable they might be,
and some are lamentable but
we no longer have the luxury of assuming,
so we must gather together the strands,
give a sense of our flavour,
surely there is no original sin,
we're not that clever,
especially given that redemption
is merely a dollar off,
don't listen to those imposters,
they just love to story
their hero songs of self,
and I wonder if the myth is alright,
will it hold,
will it emerge, unfold,
without a narrative it's only money,
as stories go,
is this mine,
shall I tell?
