FICTIONISTA

FICTIONISTA
Ivan Jenson

Real time and place
have their place
in our lives but
I am now talking
about the never-never land
of professional fibbing
which is a storyteller’s
stock-in-trade
and even though readers
know that it never
happened and never will
what other choice
do we have?
Life is but
a mellow drama
without melodrama
and a tragedy
without comedy
and a beautiful
heroine is
like heroin
to a literary
addict
and life is
pathetic pathos
without
a sympathetic
protagonist
and a villainous
antagonist
or the singular
pleasure of
discovering
a pair
of paranormal
lovers between
the covers
who live
in the afterlife
of our thoughts
after we shut
the book
shut our eyes
and dream
