A Liar's Knot


Charm
them.
Let yes
sit on
their lips
before
a question
even rolls
from your
tongue.

Deception
wraps the
deceived
around
its finger


 

with a flirt
and vague
suggestion.

A liar’s knot
always looks
better when
tied in satin
ribbon.

Amazing. And the last stanza was the best of all. Engaging word play.

Great lead-in to your killer closing stanza. Perfectly penned.

Get em to say yes before you even ask them anything. What the best con men do (I had this uncle...)

My copy of Dirt Road Dreams should arrive Monday or Tuesday...
