WHOSE TRUTH. You have no monopolyon truth, says Daultil.It wears a many colouredcoat; each one picks outcolours for their own cloth.We sit like those in Plato’scave seeing shadows danceupon the wall and think thoseshadows reality and the firegiving off flames some god
who cares. Daultil sips hisflask of booze. You watchhim lift it to his lips. His wordshang around your head likeflies about a horse’s eyes.Glunk glunk goes his flasklifted by him to take his fill.He sets it down, wipes his lipsand says, Pilate never knewthe truth, he thought it just arandom choice of this or thatof this sad world’s philosophies;he could not see beyond hisnose or dull thought’s reach. You keep your silence, watchas Daultil undoes the buttons
