liars

word after word after word
each of them waiting in line–
lined to form a sigh…
going straight, then curving
then straight again.

what can be felt its avoided.
questions are dodged, poems are dodged,
only masked truths are shown
and clownish behavior.

the poet lies.
one side of the painting written,
the other hidden.

but so do the skies.
the painter.

so do I.
