Lying Tower

stack them up like
foam blocks, all foamy—
or wooden blocks 
be wooden

Higher, and higher,
piled on top of the other,

A foundation built on lies

Sky high, too high 
last lie
to put on top,
one more lie
as white and light
as a feather

but it is enough
to let everything
topple over...


Liar mother,
what becomes your child?

liar child,
what will become of you?

    You changed your name!! I was wondering who was Pen Nee! Interesting name, is it your real name? May I still call you Nikko? It remainds me ...the Penne Pasta! : ) ...and in Spanish...nah! Forget about it! LOL!

    I wonder how many names can you derive from your name NIKKO. Beautiful theme on lies on this piece. I am trying to figure out your avatar picture. Is it a bread? I know my guess is wrong! CG (sige) Love Dalila

    A very profound poem Nikko.. I love the laddery effect of collapsing..No matter how the truth can hurt in life sometimes,but it can never hurt as much as a lie..Very deep Nikko,Hope you are fine dear :).I'm on and off here lately,im having quite some tough nauseas:) Hope they pass quick.

    Missy, I absolutely love everything about this write even the format but I especially love the questions you pose at the end because ultimately that is what it is all about! ;) I am about to start my day and will nag you later about the name change :D *mwahugs*
