Hidden in Sight

Silken syllables —
all six metres —
pleated into graceful words
tucked in at the waist
falling in folded thoughts
woven into fabric
wrapped around
a slender form

Pearly phrases
delicately draped
over the heart
hiding sibilant sentences
layered over curves
sneaking through
translucent threads
promising a poetic paean
etched on an exposed sliver
of sensuous skin

Unravel the secret
to read
what is written
on me
