Notes From The Closet

Espionage comes easy to
someone so used to hiding;
to password protection –
obfuscating the truth of self.
Taught how to stare at boys
without looking; how to touch
as if by accident. Taught to
sneak with shadows; how to
be impassive as steel. We
are taught this all before we
learn how to say our names.
