|Hidden in Sight (Alban, Ontario, 2014)|
Fool for You
I am such a fool for you
that you will never see me
except by accident, reflected in a side-mirror
after you've already driven by.
I hide mercilessly in plain sight
Peeking around the skirts of what I seem
Afraid the shocking gleam of my longing
might intolerably impose on your good will.
Hold my breath, stifle twitch
try to spare you from all this
