I hate to tell you this

considering years of embellishment
toward your deceitful, tough guy

unruly reputation,
but I see a small

crack in your story
sliver width, just wide enough

some truth slipped through

No one is listening yet
your secret remains safe

    1. Debbie, Thank you for noticing that short is not always simple. I think there is great beauty in simplicity and choose my words carefully.
      I have been enjoying your travel photos. Seeing the world and taking photos along the way is one of my loves too.
