secrets

if i were the razor clam,
storing my own world beneath,
washed upon and over
i would not flinch,
i would not flinch from my secrets.

if i were a fossil,
harbouring the truth,
buried in prehistoric silt,
i would not flinch,
i would not flinch from my secrets.

if i were an old tooth,
discarded and alone
no longer with a home,
i would not flinch,
i would not flinch from my secrets.

i am here, mortal me,
with resilience,
and with flesh and with bone,
i will not flinch,
i will not flinch from my secrets.
