chew the choke. strangle the memory. tell the sickness your name. 

some lies are permanent. 

unknot the skin in curious slivers. gather all the faces that wear you. 

the machine idles inside us. sharp gears hungry to taste flesh.  made impotent. 

we chase the math. devoured by the numbers. splinters in the hands of fate. 

purged by our ambivalence. beasts in delicate dresses. betrayed by the choices that  made us. 

we stammer. valiant in our circumstance. the most exceptional of thieves. 

some lies are permanent. 

all truths are temporary.
