WHEN IN DOUBT
Transparency indubitably ideal
Must be a both ways offering
Though … So we inch forward
Full of such lack of confidence
Guardedly trading confidences
And reactions … Testing, testing
Are you receiving me? … Over
The night sky pales around us
Chink by chink the curtains open
To reveal … only a tinted window
Opaque … and that’s all she wrote
“Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.”
Gambol, gambol, little lamb
How I wonder who I am!
Dancing, prancing, high then low,
Never knowing where I go.
