Lies Lie on Her Lips
How do you feast on a language without the palmwine of proverbs?
How do you address a lie without hurting the liar?
How do you be an African?
She said she saw a shining snake under the Stairs,
I shoke my head in sequential shock for I know what I saw,
But who argues with a man about the dragon he saw while he slept after nights of insomnia?
Who will tell this lady that this snake she saw was in a dream that we are all part of?
Who will tell this lady that the snake she saw was single script of her insecurities it tells of the attention she seeks?
