Lie

The sweetest picture
I have of you
tells a lie
seventeen years running

What I want to
hear most

admission? omission?

has been
Tucked somewhere
safe

in a Christmas stocking
more to Kafka’s
liking than Capra’s

wound tightly around itself
so as not to reveal a thing.

I can’t be the only person who notices the similarities between “Franz Kafka” and “Frank Capra”
