Lies

September 18, 2008
By Erin Swadener, Omaha, NE

How can they keep coming?
They come this way

And that way.


From that person to
This person.
They go around and around
Until it stops on the dot.

That is how lies are
Or are they that way?
They could be covered
To be covered.

Or could they be
Like a train?
Where without the
Lies the train would
Slow and slow until
They are revealed
In one large
Booming catastrophe.

Where the only thing left
Is NOTHING.

How can we know what
Lies are?
When they just
Aren’t what they are.
