A truth and three lies

A long sticky pile,
small waffery packets,
a white truth,
and three lies.

All or none of it.
one blow
the pile crusts down.

Adding to the plate
two more lies,
all red, yellow and blue

what is a truth and
what is a lie?

Or are all my words
doomed, in the process
of forming, molding, breaking

A tip-toed relationship,
where I forget
how to count.
