A Poem by Sanjeev Sethi: "Persuasion"



Panglossian in piety will assuage

by offering you its clutch of courage

when tentacles of truth plague.

That is a function of Faith.

Exegesis is inwards:

unsigned and autonomous.

If others believe you’re lulling yourself

into a funhouse of delusion, so be it.

(First published in Sentinel Literary Quarterly)
