This is the truth I tell you:
One thousand paper cranes equal
Carried up on parchment wings
not melting before rain, nor
incinerating at a lightning thrust.
one equals one thousand or
one thousand equals one. In the end
it’s all the same
(Aren’t we all, in the
surreal blackness of Death?)
(What is that but
make-believe for children?)
is not what we call truth,
nor is truth honesty.
Put it any way you like,
but they are twins only in your mind.
are not honest,
or truthful either.
They are nothing
but embodiment of
borne on a thousand impervious wings
Park City, Utah

Okay, I have a bit of criticism.
1. Make sure to keep your capitalization consistent. In most instances, you capitalize the first word of a sentence, but you don't always do that.
2. What does honesty have to do with paper cranes?
Other than that, I actually like the rhythm of this poem. It flows very well.
