The Naked Truth

image

When given a choice
we often wear metaphors
or borrow similes
from others
to blend
because the stark truth
is all
too scant
and much too revealing
to wear
in public.

There are a few
who will unravel
with their glowing
hands without shame.
There are no words
to shield.
Just obscene
light.
