CLANDESTINE COMMONALITIES
(1/7/19)


this
is difficult
for you

I know

you are
a high minded
person

with lofty
ideals

but such
integrity
is not always
the most
efficacious
approach

sometimes
we must lie
in order
to discover
the truth

we must
cheat
in order
to find
what is real

we must
deceive
in order
to love

we are
dealing
with other
humans
after all

honesty
is not
our first
language
