lie to me.

click to listen to lie to me, read by heather brager.


how many deceptions 
have I quietly
assimilated?

I have become
the swallower of bitter pills
learning to choke
down a quandary
of murky
illegitimacies
I wash them down
with vodka and gin

and in the end
love is just truth
and nothing more

if only you really knew
how sweet 
purity tastes
