We Are Hard On Each Other


Posted In: General

We Are Hard On Each Other

We are hard on each other 
and call it honesty,
choosing our jagged truths
 with care and aiming them across
 the neutral table.
 The things we say are 
true; it is our crooked 
aims, our choices
 that turn them criminal.

Of course your lies
are more amusing:
 You make them new each time.
 Your truths, painful and boring
repeat themselves over & over perhaps because you own so few of them.

A truth should exist, it should not be used
 like this. “If I love you” 
is that a fact or a weapon?

Does the body lie moving like this, are these
touches, hairs, wet soft marble my tongue runs over
lies you are telling me? 
Your body is not a word, 
it does not lie or speak truth either.
 It is only 
here or not here.

Margaret Atwood, “We Are Hard on Each Other”
