The Level of Truth I Offer
and the Level of Truth You Require




                                                       “All things become the flesh of our delight,
                                                       The evidence of our wishes.”
                                                                                           —Julia Randall


It almost seems as if you wanted me
to reassure you you were right when you were wrong,
wrong when you were right, that your price for loving me
was perjury.

But that couldn't be,
surely?

To succeed in this world, you said, study flensing and mimicry.
