the Falls in which I lie


Planning a lie 1

If you were the last to be deceitful

Will you be the first to be again?

If you were born to be angry

Will you be the first to place blame?

If you called guilt forgiveness

Would you have a place for our shame?

planning a lie 2When called upon for a new sin?

When ushered into your penance of copper, nickel and tin?

Had it not been for ambivalence toward a better way

Had it not been been for a pocketful of crosses purchased today

Had it not been for a rosary worn atop your scarred chest

Had it not been for a late communion showered in make believe

Had it not been for all of these

Would I have taken an untimely leave

Untimely leave

Untimely leave of your deceit…
