Defeated

Every word heard
from outside
is Untruth.
In silence is the undivided
Truth.
So when you deceive me
and others
think of me and others.
Keep eyes wide
and ears listening
like the word naïveté.
Smell the morning air
with its ugly gasoline fumes
and french fry grease
and too much perfume
and crisp blankness.
Then
lie for all of us
not self.
For there is no lonely
without
you.
