omission [poem]

image

I lie by omission
giving vague answers to avoid
uncomfortable truths
it feels like a lie
makes me want to dance around it
until it settles
like false honesty
between us
it’s the match to our bonfire
we go up in smoke and pretend
the fire didn’t burn our
everything
to the ground
