The Slowpoke

Der emes iz a kricher.
The truth is a slowpoke.
– Yiddish saying

The truth when not drunk
(availing a legitimate excuse)
is a tardy bastard. He saunters
out the door in the morning pulling
himself together as he slopes
to touch strangers in passing;
shambling by unnoticed
at the station as they pause
to reflect and ignite their
numinous epiphanies.
