A Taste in the Mouth

Photo1492 (2)

O unknowable land
of familiar stories
your secrets concealed
behind invisible masks
for us to uncover.
A teasing now and again
sparkles and glimpses
that hide before they show.
A taste in the mouth
just enough to know
there’s nowhere else to be
nothing else to do.
Lured by your mystery
holding in a wait
that never ends
and never begins.
The louder you whisper
the less I know
the less I know
the more I am.
