MOVING LIPS
(11/20/12)


acquire
appropriate
attire

comb
hair

comb
face

pluck hairs
from nose
and ears

attempt
to pass
as human

knowing
what to say
but having
little feeling
for the words

watching their
incredulous faces
as I explain
how insane
I became
in the not
so recent
past

they
look at me
and have
a hard time
accepting
my story

but the
statements
are fact

and I am
more comfortable
with the facts

the truth

than ever
before
in my life

however
I am less
than comfortable
with the many things
that I find myself
saying

doing

in order
to make
everyone else
feel at ease
around
me

they prefer
pretty lies

and that
scares
me

because
I can
still believe

absolutely

in
my own
lies

since
they have
become

to such
a degree

my reality
