the secrets that we keep
every superhero has to have them
the burden of not having the ones you love
know you fully
or even
that you love them at all

there’s a boy in my office
who pulls of Clark Kent
quite well
suit coat and glasses
and a little curl of hair
at the top of his forehead
with the tell-tale awkwardness
around a certain writer

but what he hides underneath
his secret that you would never guess
is a pair of goofy socks
that just peek through
when he forgets and crosses his legs
