Beyond the obvious

I don’t want to be so wise

That I can’t be fooled

Once in a while

I felt the heartbeat

I could not feel the weight

It was so light

Forbidden territory

Forbidden intimacy

Forbidden delicacy

Aren’t the most fascinating

Conspicuous is compassion

Caring is ostentatious

Embarrassment is dying

The hidden floats deceptively


Like an iceberg
