One Truth

You say: evasive,
It won't hold water,
A sieve vs. vase

vis-à-vis I've saved
all the best truths
for this (the truth) a

nightlong longing for
a night of lying
with you. I do the

next best thing: a glance
(glancing) (it contains
all I want to contain)

Forgive the shy, the away. If
truth be told, I can't be true.
