Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

Look at it.
From every angle.

Get incisively close.
The story will come

from this place,
from the exacerbating details

you may find
yourself fetishizing.

Whatever story you arrive at
will be your version of

how to manage mystery,
the who-done-it

of what happened,
your version of trying

to uncover the proof
of truth within a world

of uncertainty.
You might say, story

is just a convenient way
to avoid too much ambiguity.

*Inspired by an interview with Errol Morris about the making of
 his documentary, The Thin Blue Line.
