disclose in prose


quietly retreat

acquiesce the sentiment

trace his name

with idle hands

across the canyon

of your hips

but never admit to it

don’t forget

loose lips sink ships

and magicians

don’t reveal their tricks

confess the paradox

in the shower

on long drives

with strangers

disclose in prose

then lock it up

erase the tapes

and kiss the key
