The Written Word Is A Lie

written by: Paula Puolakka


There is no truth found from the interviews,
the press releases,
the historical remarks,
the scientific ponderings,
and especially not from the light narratives
of man: chick-lit, fanfic, and whatever.

The writing world is the stage of
red pens,
biased reviews,
calculated publication dates,
and rainbow-colored propaganda.

What do we know about the world around us?
The written word is a lie.

Paula Puolakka

Paula Puolakka (1982) is a Beat poet, writer, and MA (History of Science and Ideas) who has won poetry and short story contests held in the USA and Israel. She has also been given credit from the essay contests held in Finland, for example, by The Finnish Reserve Officers' Federation. Her interview that was published through SoFloPoJo in October 2019 and included, for example, her views over the thoughts of Mr. Ludwig Wittgenstein, Mr. Theodore Kaczynski, and over the different forms of violence in society, had to be, unfortunately, withdrawn since the editors went and censored the interview after the publication without her permission. Puolakka's uncensored interview can still be found through Re:fiction. Between 4/2019 and 5/2020, Puolakka was 25 x the winner of the poetry challenge held by Poetry Potion. Her latest work can be found through Jerry Jazz Musician and The Burgundy Zine. The newspapers Kaleva and Savon Sanomat have also supported Puolakka’s opinions, and the radio station Dei has shared her good vibes on 6/15/20, 1/23/20 & 09/23/19.
