• For Mary Ellen

  • I'm sneaking in under the radar.
    Shyness is a strange companion.
    It's walked me past
    a thousand possibilities.
    Burying messages
    in vaults in the desert.
    This is not a poem.
    Just a thought to no-one, aimless,
    about why some are shy,
    and others survey the hallways of perhaps,
    with a glint in their eye.
