Loving Conversation

the conversation
kicks and screams
with absurdity:
          "Do you love me?"
"Of course!"
          (Half truths never
     they only maim a little.)
"Am I beautiful?"
          "Yes, dear."
          (Sometimes all the
pretty things are
          the first signs of
"We are happy."
          Lover's white
lies are what justifies
our decadent little
          The conversation
kicks and screams.
