Final Proof

Incontrovertible evidence,
the fingerprint of failure,
litters the scene. Your guilty
smile adds confirmation.

One glance and the story
is clear, protestations
are pointless, there is
no more space for lies.

All that remains of
my box of Turkish delight
is the dusting of icing sugar
on your fingers and face!
