Charles Antony & Stefan Schmidt - He Lied

from by Charles Antony and The Outsiders



Stefan Schmidt : digital manipulation of the original voice recording
Charles Antony : poetry and voice


He Lied

He lied
when he said
that he wasn’t bothered
about his skin
starting to dry and crack

He lied
when he said
that he didn’t care
about the creeping green tinge
that was covering his body

He lied
when he said
that the negative test results
from the hospital
meant nothing to him

He lied
when he said
there were no benefits
to his lengthening fingers
turning to claws

He lied
when he said
that he would call tomorrow
as he was having trouble
using his phone

He lied
when he said
that it was no fun
climbing walls
and catching flies

He lied
when he said
that he hated
basking on rocks in
the sunshine all day

he told the truth
to the other lizards
lounging in the sun
that indeed once he was human

Charles Antony
