truth or dare

tastes like
twelve years old
on your tongue
as you say it

turning to your neighbour
with a smile
and a glint in your eye
but it’s dark
so none can see
‘truth or dare?’
it’s easy to
ask it casually
when it’s not your turn

running naked
or calling crushes
or confessing to
things you never even
meant to happen

things that no polygraph would provoke
here they are laid bare
