He said
Lemonade tastes better in a coffee cup
You barely looked up
from your newspaper
your magazine
the book you're reading to impress
those people in the bookstore
who told you
Dr. Seuss is not an acceptable favorite author
for someone as old as you're pretending to be.

Before you blink again
we've driven away from the crime scene
and bought an idea, a thought
a concept of love,
of life of passion
and all of the promises
that you knew you could never make
you knew you would never keep
you know that everything you say
      will always be a lie.

Very sad how so many fool themselves and eachother.  Well done!  I hope this isn't a real life situation.

Been there, done that and got the t-shirt to prove it.  I just came through a divorce from a husband who lied about everything.  I can feel your anger and resentment and I fully understand it.  A very good poem - one I could have written myself and may yet.  You are a very good poet.

I miss so much around here......

I'm a fool for a poem with insight -- I have GOT to read more of your poetry! This scintillates, and it's been sitting here for months without my having stumbled over it....that's sad.

I am smiling so wide here...

I love your take on the pseudo intellect posturing--I think we should go into business marketing false covers for those who feel embarrassed by a guilty penchant for Sydney Sheldon or Harold Robbins.

But I think Dr. Seuss is now currently on the acceptable list. I heard a pretty good argument for symbolic meaning in The Cat In The Hat.

You rock, lady!
