BLACK BOX
(9/16/17)

a mystery

an enigma

a factual
fiction

a functional
construct

a fantasy
providing
predictive performance
that eventually
becomes
reality

interior motives
fading
to irrelevancy

only
the believed liar
need know
the truth

if the client

the neighbor

the loved
one

is satisfied

is secure

with the
results

a corrupt soul
at times
dons a dependable
body

deception
obscured
in the smiles
reflected

when
the deceiver
talks

walks

in veracity

the unknown
should probably
stay
that way
