not-so-secret (1 & 2)

                                              not-so-secret 1


the open’s
out,

the assumed
proved.

the obvious
glorious

but still we’re
unmoved.

like a flower,
we ignore it

until needed
–then we

adore it.
praise the plain

because what
it does

is let us
be as

we choose,
without obliging

another’s
mood.

so don’t dismiss
the unconcealed:

though lacking
mystique, it’s

no less real.

even the transparent’s
debated

while wildly
underrated:

we seem
to prefer

not to
concur

because then
tempers

might be
sated:

we forever seem
to have a drive

to tamper with
taste and appetite

fearing and lusting
for the unknown:

wanting safety
while having minds blown.

the obscure
turns us on

(so long as there’s
nominal harm)

(so long as risks
remain virtual)

our desires are
typically mercurial.
