After the Fact

We live in a post-fact world.
That’s a fact. The perfumer
Is opposite the fishmonger;
Firethorns orange a hedgerow;
It is October in this poem.
Poets tell the truth with lies.
It is November in this poem.
We live in a post-fact world.

POETS ARE LIARS

‘You shouldn’t let poets lie to you.’
