Cloak and Dagger - Sept. 28, 2022

you could say

a poet is like the spy

who breaks into places

looking for classified information

skeletons or warm bodies in closets

everything that holds a secret

an untold story to tell

needs a bit of cloak and dagger

some underhanded slyness

a riddle breaker to find it

mysteries are clever

surprises are hidden

jewels are in locked safes

obvious clues only lead

to locked doors

and you can bet

that key

is definitely not

under the potted plant
