Amelia: clandestine.

by Andrew S Adams

i've got a secret that everybody knows
and what is surprising is
that there is no pretense,
there is no beating around
the issue-
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 think,
i know. i think.

no, i know.

i think?

i don't know.
