your subdued words twist

through the air, snapping

the thick tension, and I

giggle, because I know you are

lying, because I know you are

telling a joke, and I keep

giggling, but why are you

staring at me like that, why

aren't you laughing too, why

aren't you smiling, and then

I am dizzy, my head

is spinning, I fall to the

floor in a daze, and I

want you to stop it,

stop, this isn't funny anymore,

it never was, liar, you filthy

little liar, stop it, stop it,
