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

"She would fill endless notebooks with stories about the characters in her life, their impressions, words, friends, lovers, inspirations, fantasies. She spent her days dreaming up worlds where they fit together in visions; the if only, the never again, the someday. Those who knew her best would describe her as a creature with a clear and sometimes painful sense of herself; furious with ideas and convictions, to a point that she frightened love away with discernment and a relentless strength of character."
