nothing dressed up in something like the truth

sometimes all we can do is

skirt the unthinkable,

and create a confession

of hints and references-

create a diversion

with metaphors and similes and veiled rhymes-

and oftentimes, all you can say is

nothing at all what you mean,

but something like a prayer dressed up as a poem,

something like a scream dressed up as a song,

something like an ending dressed up as a closure.
