Poem: Info

If you have a secret,

That you hold near,

And dear,

You would not like to know—

His name.

You answered a single question,

And there goes your privacy.

A hint, and away it flows,

Info.

In the twitch of the eye,

And the stance of the body,

With the gulp of air—

On a lip,

He peers into you.

There’s no point not telling him,

He’ll figure it out, anyway.

A loose end you can’t defend,

And the right question hits the wrong source,

And suddenly you tell me everything.

For, once you see,

The info-side of me,

You can’t—

Won’t—

See all I see.

For, what you don’t want to say—

You may not know it,

But you already told me.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
