How far do lies reach?
To any generation,
as waves dismantle on a beach,
but a kind of procreation;
the constant offing, incoming,
the distant one grows
as it is borne inland.

To see a lie, then look
at what the beach folk say
about the little, little wave
out yonder, away; then look
at what they say
about the same wave
as it reaches land.
