tell them nothing (but a lie)

it’s so easy
to tell
a lie

does it

that old wife
of his –

she says
she is twenty-one
I think
she might be
older –

she lies

they all
tell lies

I try not to

there is no need
to tell lies
you can dance

I love jazz
you know

as for the police . . .

oh well

I try not to tell them
