Underneath

image

time
crumbling
a slight scratch
here or there
reveals what lies
just under
the surface

bright colors
painted on in
thick strokes
can keep
the truth
hidden
for only so long

then
suddenly
the crack
becomes
an epidemic
and naked
secrets
show through

a life lived
in transparency
does not
fear this
the inevitable
cracking
revelation
