Too Many Secrets


Too many secrets
too many secrets
2 4 6 8 who will you investigate?
when the cover up has been suffocated by too many blankets
and we sit back and let the voting for a dance show consume us
something is very wrong and its not the danish
what’s in aarons closet
what’s recording in my attic
everything’s alright now everything’s fine
and we want you to sleep well
(while we watch you)
big brother was nothing but a sandlot bully compared to the men in grey hats
and sneakers
these boundless informants
hola, me llamo….
We already know.
pardon me, may I borrow your identity
while we study your stylometry
and ask for sworn oaths which flame like floating chinese lanterns
before settling back down in little piles of ashes
to be swept away






About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
