Hidden behind your face


writer beware
those conscientious efforts
to smooth the rough surface of your psyche
may fail

the mind is a subversive muscle
given the break
it will envelope your words
stain them dirty shades of grey
place creased and faded images of
abandoned arachnid dinners
rotting in aged cobwebs
on each fresh page
and in a pitch set perfectly for diligent readers
it will scream those secrets
hidden behind your face

so writer beware
be careful what you say
the mind may do all of these things
but maybe
that is your deepest wish
