Lies Served A La Carte - Poem by Shelly Price

From this side of truth
lies fell twisted on the plate

served in courses
forced to swallow
the bitter taste of dishonesty
sauteed in deceit
prepared with disloyalty
smothered with indiscretion
topped with faithlessness
served on the finest china
a La carte

the pungent after-taste
blackened betrayal
burning blisters on my tongue
churning like heavy cream
in my unsettled stomach
nauseated by the truth
that was never spoken
