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

indistinguishable.
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.
