What have you kept secret? A Prints Project poem from Heather Hallberg Yanda.

24 Aug

What have you kept secret?

Where are you looking, Emily?
Beyond some tree in your
Amherst neighborhood?
How safe, your home, your
family, the few you love.
Or are there others you’ve
kept secret from us all?
What love have you had?
What love have you given?
What keeps you clutching
that thing with feathers?
