If It Makes You Tall

Twist, and lie, and obfuscate
If it makes you tall
Slink around the alley gates
Scale the garden wall
Darkness was and is your friend
She’s known the darkness too
The bitterness, the avarice –
Aversion to the truth
So warp your mind
Around the time
When you switched love for hate
When you decided
“Fuck the light”
“Fuck the path that’s straight”
And tell yourself
It isn’t fair
That you deserve to choose
To lie to keep things
As you’d like –
But if you do, you’ll lose.
