what is true (is a secret)

Inspired by the phrase ‘I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

what good
is a secret
I ask

I can’t answer
I should know

I harbor the many
and the plenty

feed them
in darkness
upon myself

for they
are me
am they

and we rot

we rot

(in secret)

what to do

should I
permit myself
to speak
regardless of hazard

of risks
after all
a secret
is a secret
for a reason

as a protection
of me

of you

and so
never knowing
the right thing
the best thing

the clever

stay silent
for good
or bad

my secrets

and do not

will not
of myself
what I know

what is true
