Or Not

There comes a stage of life
to many members
of most sentient species
when one thinks
perhaps to risk the task
of taking stock: withstand
the shock of introspection –

peel off the mask –
elect to pick each rusty lock
that quarantines (let’s say)
a shameful lust
or fetishistic secret – making
sure the main experience
of Being will remain shut up –

thick with shadow
and remorse. There comes
a time one may decide
to take a different
course. Bring it to redemptive
light – full force! Or not.
Darkness makes things hot.
