"False words are not only evil in themselves," Plato wrote, "but they infect the soul with evil." In this first decade of the new century, in which the infection of the lie has become commonplace, I look for sustenance in poems that body forth our detailed, multifarious, human truths.
First, I often found myself wanting theological voices from Cristianity's past who would body forth in this text as more viscerally upset about the violence of em ire, the limb-tearing, torture-dispensing, life-snuffing, grinding dehumanization worked especially by empire s military actions.
