"Isn't that what Art is all about?

Authenticity

Laying bare the self?"

 

She breathes in, pushes out her chest,

tilts her head back just so.

Make them think you know what you're talking about.

 

"Fine I'll just have to assume the worst -"

 

His body inflates to three time the size,

fills the door frame.

 

Didn't I deserve happiness?

Didn't I deserve to be loved?

 

"And for the faith you have placed in me as

your leader -"

 

Laughter from behind a heavy wooden door,

deep laughter.

my hair looks weird.

 

"God is love! Shout it to the heavens!

God is love!"

 

At once, a small heartbeat is ended.

A spiritual channel closed.

 

My God is love. My God.

 

"Pack your things and get out!"

 

The walls shake as he breathes, glass melts,

drips down.

 

You don't get to do this to me!

To me!
