Truth or Consequences

Dear poets,

In a class of poetry
we discussed the truthfulness
of what we write

I realized that some (many) poets
write only about what actually happened
and all their details are accurate

I just write
I add on and take away
assume different personalites
combine, etc

Poetic license, creativity, imagination, 
I apologize for misleading in any way
I mixed up the worlds and
didn't realize how SERIOUS an issue
it was

I knew people made little addendums
and comments but thought they were
just kindnesses not neccesities
some poems are obvious fiction
hyperbole etc but I vow
to be more careful now
to comment upon the differences
