Four Naked Thoughts

I blinked – and saw four
naked thoughts rush round
in flushed pursuit – to chase?
no – to escape and to erase

wherever they’d just been
as if for me to find whatever
they had trafficked in
would constitute such

monstrous sin that none of us
could possibly survive.
And then I blinked again
and they were gone – had

dived back to that packed
impenetrable dawn where
thoughts put their alarming
and transparent raiment on.
