In Lie.

by Jack Roth Wherein lies the space – the open door the empty room. Color to black n’ white – to fade to dark. A spot on the wall. opens. . . cracks. . . welcoming to another. Cover it up. All of it. Change the locks (open your mind) Take new pictures (open your heart) Fill in the crack. All of them. All the lies. In lie.

Jack,

Thanks for sharing this with us. I really like the voice where it feels like two different people are speaking:


Change the locks
(open your mind)
Take new pictures
(open your heart)

Nice work!

Jim
