“Poetry's imagination is the ability to be creative with reality.”
Never before, have so many depended so heavily upon innuendo, double entendre and verbal camouflage to express, then secondarily to cover up their audacious lies.
The only aspect more repugnant than these preposterous acts of repetitious weaving is the speaker who begins to imagine his or her own vacuous fabrications piqued enough to be veracious.
In the past this “spinning” activity was known as double-speak and prior to that simply, double talk. Leaping back further still we find such oratory described more poetically as the “Turn Of A Phrase.” Whereby the speaker either eloquently or by wit and mastery of the language, profusely and proficiently moved or spun the topic on its axis. Thus guiding the emphasis and direction from one pivotal position to a different point altogether.
