Hole or Hope

Lines I left on Paintings:

Sometimes I think everything beautiful
is just bait for the old fishers.

Hope

Hole

What I say to you travels about
770 miles per hour on a warm day.

The chill you create slows the speed of my sound;
I don’t want to talk to anyone who is cold.

Sound cannot travel in a vacuum
My words vibrate through your matter.

After all that talk about actualizing potential
and living out-loud —
I am at fifty-six still a secret
but at least I am a secret you can’t keep.
