A Lie

once upon a time, 
i found the secret 
to the truth 
to protect my sanity, 
i smashed it 
with a rock 
and destroyed all trace 
of the liar.


  1. Chard deNiord: The Double Truth

    I still taste you from the time
    you painted my tongue
    with your scarlet finger.
    It cured my heart of innocence,
    that single dose, and I have tasted it—
    the double truth—ever since:
    the bittersweet in the words
    I cannot speak but stick
    in my mouth like stones
    I’ve learned to talk around.

  2. Sharp and to the point. Bravo David Allen.
