Autofiction

6/14/2021 Why would you want to write a fictional autobiography?

“Why would you 
write a 
fictional autobiography?

She asked,
and I wanted to say,
“You’re doing it right now,
everything we put into words
erases truth,
leaving trails"
“I just call them Morning Glories,”
a different she said,
I couldn’t say,
“Hedgebind Weed 
tastes better, twists  together,
rolls the whole garden,
ties everything into knots,
a physical manifestation
of what reductionists
call neurochemical hallucination.
While those of us 
who have been bound, 
rolled over, become plants, with flowers
for eyes, our bare skeletons a simple
calcified trellis,
all our hopes, desires, accomplishments, and failures,
worm food, a rich substrate for future riotous growth,
don’t know 
how else,
to say it.”

Well y’all, that’s it for today. A shout out to the newbies, welcome. If you figure out what’s going on here, please be sure to let us know.
