Honestly, I'm a Liar, & Other Balances & Imbalances

grimy mirror rhyme

  THEY’RE  TAKEN  BY  MY  PICTURE

 

It’s likely my loved ones won’t lose too much sleep

They like me, they think  so

Though know me a creep

It may be the smile I only suggest

They’re charmed for the charm I clearly suppress

They’re taken by my picture

A  fixture on my wall

I’m faking the frame-up.

It’s best I suggest a smile once a while

And pleasingly say it all  (or not)

Easily for a touched-up wall

 

 

 

 

And  true love waits /in haunted attics

And true love lives/on lollipops and crisps”
