Tarnished

penny wise

exposure corrodes

atmosphere

in existing

dull-coats

bright and shiny

contrarily

WE rust

hidden

in closets

cells

“forgotten” incidents

long-lost

dogeared journals

begrimed

besmirched

obscured and sullied

in our tainted

silencings

our inner gleaming

luminously revealed

in salted vinegar

of spoken

shouted

truths
