The Best Kind of Lies

by Emily
(Iowa, USA)

it was a simple word

almost beautiful, really
nothing new, but a simple
but nobody liked it(they

were willing to live in darkness
it was too honest)
it knew everyone
but no one wanted to admit
so they locked him up
in a corner,
told it to change

and it did.

it turned into
but no one liked that either

(they wanted the truth)
so it turned into nothing and

all the while
BIRTH was being
praised (just as
but not quite as real)
