thats why you lie

u have honest eyes
pay your rent on time eyes
and close the door when you’re done
held half-closed,
ever ready to jam my fingers in.

u handed me a peanut chip cookie last night
I wasn’t even allowed to reach in myself.

u have honest eyes
that’s why when you lie
you do it on the phone
where I’m blind
