“I lied all the time” by Sasha at her kitchen table

from a quote by Louis C.K
Sunbeams of The Sun (May 2017 issue)

Snakes on my tongue I wonder about
bus rides and vomit and dust mites
and fingers tracing leg veins and
maple syrup on the table carving
sticky carving gentle carving
hard carving bread and butter

You ask me if I’m happy and
I’ve never been more translucent
You’ve never been more tired
Are you lying to me
you ask
and I guarantee you that the
snake has plans to colonize
the season
