Comprehending Hypocrisy


Another predilection

The same human

In a different monster

I’ve said I loved her

 

Denying it existed

Americans and Pharisees

Passing through

A gutted gold mine

 

If any word could help

I’d save it for my final gasp

Ice calming poison soothing

White steel linen brooding
