Skin Suit Lies

a star lost
behind a cloud
too poor
to look cheap
hot brew
cold blood
a sunset
over the bridge
burning water
busted boots
the teeth
from a black hole’s
yellow and green
headlight eyes
trying to be friends
walking to church
they clean up nice
in skin suit lies
pulling down
for their charts
time off
for good behavior
the cloud
to lose its
only friend
to a heavy hand
to a heavy heart
with hot brew breath
strong as kerosene
roots for the
the black holes
losing the fight
of being lied to
it doesn’t matter
how many stars
are on your chart
what matters
is how hard
you fought
to earn them
