For 2005: Which End Is Up?

[a chest poem]

WHISPER
expire with the passing time
decay
fray
shoved back into the lining
in pockets of hooded petty coats
turncoat of emotional release
where mint juleps sprinkle forget-me-nots
silent fables grass grown
but referred to
for secrets
yet to be harshly disrobed
a begged plea
reeking with regret
untold
but harbored
for once was thought of
as safe keeping
LIES
for once thought of

where mint juleps sprinkle forget-me-nots
turncoat of emotional release
in pockets of hooded petty coats
shoved back into the lining

trust
a
securing
fallacies

YOU
oozed
hushed
fallacies
securing
a
trust
undeserved
