Well-Known Secrets

Well-Known Secrets

I studied with mouth closed
Only ever had my eyes opened
So I gave up dreaming

I wish I had the words then
But some thoughts must age
Like fine wine or smelly cheese

It’s either delightful or awful
And once in your mouth you realize
It’s impossible to simultaneously spit and swallow

So as much as I want to share what I've learned
I also want to keep it to myself
Closing my eyes while opening my mouth

  1. The line here that struck me most was 'I wish I had the words then' .... cannnot imagine anyone over the age of say 50 not wishing for that.

    1. Sometimes understanding takes a lot longer than learning. Thank you so much.
