plato believed in belief, which is why I don’t believe in plato

belief is not the bearer of truth.
           knowledge is.

                     you can believe
              a bridge is safe
    and when it
            collapses
as
   you
       cross

if you don’t drown
    you will be graced
          with the knowledge
                that it was,
                       in fact,

               unsafe

some beliefs turn out to be true…whoopie…but I’d withhold belief
in something – anything – that was not FIRST backed by verifiable evidence.
