How To Tell Secrets &Truths

i have my secrets
i am my secrets
i long to be known
i fear to be known
friends are strangers
we are each other
lonely
except by consent
{island calls to island}

i whistle in the dark
won’t someone listen
to my indecencies
won’t someone utter my name
hey poet, hey lunatic, hey lover

i don’t deserve to taste
raspberries and creme
but i do

in silence
in silence
life
&God &life
&life is beautiful
&terrible &not at all
fair
this is a holy mystery
a secret truth
adding up to very little
or very much

for Poetic Asides
