January 9, 2010

I have much to say
and such little time
in which to say it.

Perhaps it will be best
to toss off the modesty
my parents and priests

have wrapped me in,
stand naked at the door
and knock and knock and knock,

and when they see me,
unclothed and brilliant,
they can ask me in or not,

knowing, of course, that
whether their guest or their gall,
I am here, naked in their world.
