Gossip the Teller

The world has one good story.
We are the world's good story.
Good stories are what we crave.
Good stories are what we do.
God, we hate the lyric world.
How we like to blame ourselves
For being too much like it,

For betraying stories, or
For giving us what we want.
I knew an academic
Forged her data to pay bills,
A plumber who made air blue
With elaborate cursing
Narratives. Who have you known?
