Marionette

Easy to crawl under his skin
like a finger in a puppet.

His whole life he’s known strings,
pulling at his mouth and eyes
in different directions
to disguise whatever real emotions stir him.

He knows how to get what he wants through compromising himself,
like a trained liar-

Marionette boy
is a mere toy in the world
for those who need entertainment.
