Refusal to Show

(Originally published as “The Naked Time”)

He never wants to show himself;
He knows that, in the past,
The things he said came back to him
Maltreated and miscast

He will not show his true heart, for
He long ago tried this –
And their love dies before it starts,
From what’s just
Cowardice
