villain

i may be
the villain
in
your tale
but my story
sees it from
the opposite
end

sort of like
how
marilyn
choked to death
on pills
after
she had already
been long dead

it’s all about
how
you spin the story
putting whomever
you prefer
as the victim
letting yourself
play white hat

so spin a fantasy
where
everything
you’ve done
was done
by someone else
if that lets you
sleep at night

but me and
norma jean
know
the truth
no matter
how many
tongues
spill falsehood
