every person has
fiction woven in their veins
and chronicles in our hearts
and we are all the narrators
the magsman of our own lives

and sometimes our
tales we tell are not what
others want to hear
the plots don't match up or
the characters collide

but we all have beautiful stories
it's just that some books don't fit on the same shelf

    Magsman , a word not heard in the United States . I got taken by a carnnie once in a pitch and toss ring the bottle game . Blends in well in this poem . As we are often taken by our own words and not our actions . But that's why there are sections with plenty of shelves for fiction , non fiction , historical , and science fiction .
