Trouble Truth Pain

I learned to lie later than most
and to be guilty early and often
Honesty came easy
Trouble, much the same

guts spilled on sidewalk cracks
soaked into stained cigarette butts
and splashed onto the slackjaw faces of bystanders and friends

Truth precedes absence
and absence precedes Pain
I'd take a stage over a shoulder
to cry on all the same
