We Liar

“Liar”


The word was but an utter whisper, which stung the lips.


 

What even does this word mean? What does this word mean to us? What does this word mean pointed at us?

 

Did we do something wrong? Did we say . . .

 

Did we do something right?

 

No No No. We did something wrong.

 

Being a “Liar” is wrong. Yes Yes Yes. Lying is wrong.

“You got that right, baby”

 

Right. We got “Baby” right. Lying wrong . . . Baby right?

 

No sense. No sense. No sense.

 

“I’m not yer ‘baby’ no more”

 

Baby right, but . . . wrong.

 

Why . . . “Liar”? Why not another name to call us? Why not over? Why not . . .

 

“Figure it out on yer own time, I’m done”

 

Klack, Klack, Klack

 

We alone.

 

“Liar” is to person.

 

Person to Person

 

Us to Us?

 

Can we lie to ourselves?

 

No, No, No

 

Are we lying to ourselves?

 

About what?

Lying, yes. Subject . . .

 

Who we are? What we do? Who we really are? What we did? What we say? What we said? What we . . .  feel?

 


Turning the head like a dog,

Confused


 

We lie

 

We lie to ourself. Yes

 

We lie about . . . us.

But lying is good.

Lying can be good, and it is.

 

Lie to survive

Only way

 

We do something right, we lie.

Yes.

 

I lie, wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

We lie, right right right right right right right right right right

 

We liar

  1. I like how the piece is extremely spread out and it gets to the point right away. It was a little challenging to follow at times, but I feel like that might have been what you were going for. Was being so unspecific about liars something you were going for?
