once upon a time

March 11, 2013

I am based on a true story:

a memoir suspended on

intermittent verifiable facts

that may be attributed to reliable sources.

While the historical record is patchy,

I am in the database, my existence proven in both letters and numbers.

I am drawn from myth,

from tales told

that assume cause and effect,

that sometimes mistake unfolding as narrative,

that usually overemphasise judgement and will.

I blend fiction and fact,

biography and autobiography,

historical accuracy and anachronism,

sitting on the past and staring up at the future.
