Retell a Lie

I have forgotten their faces

Eyes through the cafe glass

A casual diversion…

But it’s not

A glimpse of the world

As it stops and starts

Traffic lights, green and red

A view from the table

With permission to look

Sipping coffee taking notes

While lives are in flux

In a slice of Time

Looking at the masks of


Sustaining a facade

All the while living a lie

The same old story…

Just different folks

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
