Subtle are the ways you affirm
my deepest fears:
truths I have known all along
— “when I see ’em I know them” —
These were once hypotheses,
that I sought to validate,
and falsify.
— these are now the truths I believe in.
I expect a twinge of pain, but I feel none.

We are friends, we are familiar;
We have known each other
for so long
that you cannot not be true.
