A Necessary Marinade

I often find that stories
Lose their flavor
In telling them. The good
That we might savor

Or bad flavors get lost
There, in the telling;
And we send scents not those
That we were smelling.

And so, to tell the truth
I lie a lot:
For storytelling needs
A certain shot

Of falsehood marinade,
Therein to baste –
So others, then, will know
The selfsame
Taste
