On Denzin (1989) Interpretive Biography

There is only fiction
only character and plots
redemption, revelation, and response

Only the stubborn oak
and its many branches

the acorn it drops

and the soil it finds.

Facts, facticities, truth, reality
are not as malleable as much as they are

Even while I write this I am
writing a poem
writing a poem about truth
writing a poem about truth and hungry

These are not extended descriptions
of one man.  These are three men

All very much alive

All wrestling for the same black pen.
