Looking Back, You - Poem by Ben Paynter

were a
judas

little lie
like a why
you couldn’t
grip.

you slipped, little
mad dress you
wore like
a dance.

all fair of
faith and
smashed smell
whiskey breath

brown bread
broken, you
wish you could taste
the last
supper

we are
all, sometimes,
a lie
spilled from
a cup.
