LIES

I told my first lie when I was four years old. It involved cookies. I was about five years old when I found out Meryl Streep does not exist. I tapped my fingers on the glass of the television screen. When I was six my father told me it was not ok to tell lies. He told me when I was on the back of his bike. That's how I remember it. But I can't be sure. There's always another reality lingering behind this one. And another one behind that reality. One where Meryl Streep is your mother and she tells you it's ok to eat cookies on the back seat of your father's bike.
