Napowrimo: Day two prompt

Followed day twos prompt properly for this one:


lies lies lies


I am not wildly inappropriate after a few ciders

I don’t sing on my way home hoping the streets remain empty

I didn’t decide this was the solution to pent up rage

I have never run through the rain to buy cigarettes

I have never had to scrub my tongue of a morning

I have never wrecked my feet walking too far in inappropriate shoes

I have never exploited the fact I live alone to become slovenly

There is not wine jelly on the living room carpet
