you cannot hide

I stood on my hands
to reverse my perception
like The Hanged Man
from the tarot cards

I turned the world around
surrendering to the experience
of accepting
vulnerable and open I sighed

looking from a new angle
I saw you coming in and recognised 
Juicy, spicy, sometimes dry
dressed up as for the carnival

and though using the words
stolen from the unpaved streets
you forgot to hide your soul
it didn’t come in disguise

so I took it as mine
and caressing in my heart
cherished
even your squats didn’t help…
you cannot hide yourself from me
