PERCEPTION AS TRUTH
What if the sky was made of Papier-mâché
and the land a giant bathtub
with its stopper in New Zealand?
And what if the lines of latitude
were rings of wire suspending the paper dome
above the earth?
What if it’s all illusion and we’re simply make believe
and our eyes are telling us
what they perceive to be the truth?
What does it really matter?Why do we even care?
