Bold move,

he decided to tell the truth.

Alas,

history prefers

beautiful lies.

….

 

I dreamt I was in the future,

New York City.

Like,

wouldn’t you want to be?

They invited me to a party,

said the theme was Pioneer Girls,

dress accordingly.

Imagine their surprise when I turned up thus…

as myself,

Pionerka…

1980s Soviet girl wonder!

And they were all “Little House On The Prairie”.

Indeed…

What does it mean?

Accordingly as I see,

proper,

to be.
