i've got a secret that everybody knows
and what is surprising is
that there is no pretense,
there is no beating around
straight to the heart of the thing,
but nobody mentions this.
their curled lips form to a smile
when someone mentions something
vaguely related- and knowing glances
are exchanged, but nobody
really knows if they know for sure
but they know, they just don't
know. you know?
i know. i think.
no, i know.
i don't know.
