We're engaged in the task
of swapping purity for depth
to perpetrate our art
with the authority our broken heroes had.

I want to do more than tolerate your lies.
If only we could be relieved of all we've done
in keeping these fences in such marvelous repair
to distract from what was never there.

Your unappointed questions have
the same effect as a flashlight
playing back and forth
across a stranger's dark and cluttered room.

I want to do more than tolerate your lies.
If only we could be relieved of all we've done
in keeping these fences in such marvelous repair
to distract from what was never there.
