Poem 17: heartbreak

He lay in bed lying, a liar he was
She polished the mirror
and saw
His corners were sticky
His edges folded
She knew
What she must do
So she spread it with butter
And fed him the truth
Which he sprinkled, first,
with more salty lies.
Salt is nice on the tongue,
but bad for the arteries.
