"Hesitations Outside the Door"  by Margaret Atwood

 

I'm telling the wrong lies,

they are not even useful.

 

The right lies would at least

be keys, they would open the door.

 

The door is closed; the chairs,

the tables, the steel bowl, myself

 

shaping bread in the kitchen, wait

outside it.

 

Margaret Atwood
