“What liars think”

The prompt from Poetic Asides this week was to take the phrase “What (blank) Think,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem.”

This was just way too fun and I could write a million of ’em. (That is called hyperbole. A poetry term that we all indulge in–pretty much every day. I know someone who calls them “glittering generalizations” and relationally speaking we probably should reign in our tongues. But, for a poet, they are useful.)

On to the poem:

“What liars think”

I got you now

trapped
in my prison

story spinning
my mouth on fire

Speak to me of thoughts unspoken.
