The Truth of an Assertion

Is hardly the whole,
Hardly brings it down
If it’s not there, false.

Whatever is close
Is dangerous, Howe
Asserted in verse,

And there’s a something
To that assertion
Other than fact-lack

As universal.
Letting things get close,
Letting things sneak up,

Trusting something close
Could be dangerous.
Whatever. It’s close

To true, it feels like
A weir carrying
An edible catch.

It’s a suggestive.
Suggestiveness is
The power of blunt

Assertions, more than
Any factual
Truth. What’s true’s almost.
