birds in a barrel's mission is to release creative nonfiction into the wild.

40 Days & 40 Writes is its first project.

Not Faking It

We went to movies.
When I cried, he thought for sure
I was faking it.

Do women do this?
Cry to get a rise out of
unsuspecting men?

Once I confided
to a close friend that right then
I craved denouement.

She stayed unconcerned,
only squelched my feelings as
if I ran a con.

Today a friend said,
"Truth is to begin a move
to reconciliation."

I don't know, appears
to say truth is inception
of dubiety.
