Tilt your head and lie

Who could lie
so soft a tongue?
Beside each hard white tooth
there’s a speck of truth,
I’m sure.

You tilted your head
away from the light
and sipped at your whisky.
Everything in the world to say
and every word stuck in our throats.

But oh so gentle
was the way you said
goodbye.
