A Rapture Of Sorts or, Predictable Motion(s)

(a dirty, girly gun
against my head)

spring loaded
this offering will rise
upon every eye-
every cringe
and every lost.

no one will know the difference
because,
there are too many stories
to break the end
upon cataclysm;
fornication;
your friends;
and hers
(my friends
and theirs).


it's easier to make it up, 
then to tell the truth -and become, 
the ways that i despise.
