truth be told
exaggeration and
a storyteller’s dream.

Homer’s Odysseus
a Jewish David
hero and villain
adventure unfolds.

stories are true
no matter the garden
Nephilim guards
or Apache warriors.

We who venture
to write, uphold
the essence of
our subjects bold.

Even as the fisher
tells of the big one
that got away,
the tale grows by inches.
