to persist

in a life crowded
with secrets
and hours open
to them,
windows with too
much movement,
strange airs, unbalanced
particulars, graces,

they are athletic
keeping watch
on night thinking,
they're not sure
who they love most,
does it matter
if a kiss doesn’t arrive
on time,
take off its text,
hide it in quiet,
if no secret
still persist
