Truth: the liquid kind

I listen to Radiohead

when I contemplate killing you—

I want to smash your glass and

get at the inside of your meaning.

Shells tell different truths—

look at me.


I’m right and tight

with my plastic teeth,

and painted eyes that never blink.

We mislead, you and me.

  1. Its always a path that we .must walk in all its uncertainties never absorbing the tangible evidence
    But going on what your gut feels its that real deep voice saying I got you ……..
    …….you arrive at the crossroads but which way the voice replays your not a lost just turn
