Lying Mouth


Lying Mouth


I kiss him and spit,

turn words to water faucet

and wash my mouth of him


I am sure he is lying


You see,

I may have my father’s eyes,

unfocused and forgiving,


I have too my mother’s tongue


It is a quick, sharp thing

that knows all to well the bitter taste of deceit
