What Was It You Wanted To Know?

the thing they will tell you
will not be the thing that is
but only what they want

you to think it is.
it will take a long time
and many heartbreaks

before you see this is
how it is when they
begin to tell you

whatever it is they will tell you
they think you will swallow
as though it were something

but you with true insight will feel
there is something fishy here

some eel, some bottom feeder
lurking below the surface of
these lies.the whole

sea of them.
