half-breath inhaled

half truth spills from lips

causing pause in explanations

and in the eyes, deception or perception

in the heart, hoping there’s no difference

deceit makes a cozy bed

truth is fiction

A commentary po.em written by Mark and I. For more of Mark’s prose, po.etry and photography, visit: coloring out side the lines and project 21 words.

Commentary po.etry is po.ems written by comment; complimenting each’s line with another. There is no plan; this is writing in the raw; spontaneous; serendipitous.

The amazing thing is how we the choose what lines, in what order (or even from which thread); the myriad computations create a new breath each time we compose.
