if we walk together arm in arm smiling
will they ever suspect what it is that we are hiding
so well

or maybe not

the secrets of the past

does the scar show
or does your sleeve still cover it

rose print material

telephone is ringing
should we answer it

or just let it ring

let it ring
let it ring

don't let go

turn out the light

let it ring



[next poem]
