In Every Light

from by Strong Force



In every light I’ve tried
It seems I can say I’m fine.
In sun or snow outdoors, in a tiled room in Terre Haute.
My perfume is sour. I try to fumigate the room.

In every word I’ve lied.
I’ve pretended that I won’t die.
In thunder and in rain, pulsing my pelvic floor in vain.
My tune is stale. I try to amuse for now, but

I get that you have lied to me
That’s fine, I don’t mind, though I’ll never know the truth.

I recognize your smile
Out there in the crowds and cold white bathrooms,
Hold on—that is something new.

In every light you hold the word.
