On the Burden of Deceit

Who shall bear the burden of deceit -betrayer or betrayed -for a hot lie steams in the streetlike water from a blown hydrant;giddy children splash and tumble,while placid truth stands in a cup,on the curb, for anyonewith enough thirst to drink it. Image: Mar Xiao Muñoz on Unsplash

On Betrayal

Would you betray a maple for its shade -deny yourself the cool comfort of dim light,sweet woodruff and fern, ground ivy,violet in spring? Columbine refusesfull sun. Your languors burn, blisterand peel with each maliced strokeof a chainsaw. Image: Michael Fenton on Unsplash
