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
calculated publication dates,
and rainbow-colored propaganda.
What do we know about the world around us?
The written word is a lie.
Paula Puolakka (born August 18, 1982) is a Beat poet, writer, and MA (History of Science and Ideas.) In 2019, The Finnish Reserve Officers' Federation gave her an honorable mention, honoring the academic legacy of Mr. Ludwig Wittgenstein & Mr. Theodore John Kaczynski. In Dec 2020, the PhDs of Tampere University gave her appreciation: her academic article - celebrating her Master's thesis of 2012 and the academic legacy of Mr. Kaczynski & Mr. Wittgenstein - was published by Hybris. In April 2021, Puolakka won the second prize in the "Lahti, the European Green Capital 2021" writing competition. Her story celebrated "Teddy." In Dec, she landed second in the writing contest held by Haloo Maaseutu (monitored by the Centre for Economic Development, Transport, and the Environment.) From Aug 2021 to Feb 2022, Puolakka was the representative of the City of Oulu. Her sixth book came out in Nov 2022. The name of the "limited edition science-art Christmas gift" was Banded Krait: the collection of the acclaimed Beat poems, including her award- and challenge-winning poems (USA, South Africa & Canada, 2019-2022.) A few of them were dedicated to Mr. Kaczynski and Mr. Wittgenstein.
