a weakness was well #hidden
behind that pampered smiling mask
a weakness weaker than #glass

Summer promise

Hidden below icy soil,
a fat gold summer promise slumbers.
Patiently waiting for spring’s first rays
to drag them from their bed.

You say

You say you know me
yet you lie in the shadows
#hidden
unbidden
depriving me of light
asking me
not to cry

City Walk

A city walk
where neon lights
bounce of traffic
in silent rain
as laughs escape
(from glum wet folk)
like hidden tales
down Memory Lane.

Untitled

And all the love notes
I’ve written you
#hidden between small talks and subtle smiles
peek through my ribs to show the world
a love that will never be mine

On Easy Wings

Passing moon
& star shine bright
on easy wings
that fly the night
the owl (in search
of dark hour prey)
no longer hidden
as by day.

Dark Alleys

Down the dark alleys
the sad-heart men
around drum bonfires;
paper bagged bottles
& pasts hidden
in years of forgetting.

Graduation

All those wars, that punctuation.
Where were they supposed to be?
Between what years, what phrases?
Blue and gold honor pins.
High marks hidden in my box.
