Secrets That We Buy

for Mike

Secrets that are secret
Wonder what you do not know
If you linger here awhile
Perhaps I’ll share a few with you

Tiny rains of wisdom 
In a sea of confused lies
Some may be a dime a dozen
Others’ prices may be high

But never boring
Never dull here
These secrets that we buy

Lean closer in the flame’s light
Feel it dance upon your skin
As the itch of the unknowing
Crawls like ant trails up your spine

Some grow mossy as they’ve slumbered
Others cracked like stones of old

Dare discover you a secret?
Some small titillating tale?
Of nights of voyeurisms
Of days kept in shadowed wells

Pay the prophet
Tip the teller
Kick your feet up now and dream
