some people
have secrets in them

and I don’t mean
secrets like
who your neighbor
is sleeping with
or what disease
your uncle’s wife
is trying to conceal
or how your
classmate cheated
on that last geometry exam

secrets that have shadows
greater than the lunar eclipse

there, a trace
in their smile
between their teeth
in the way
they talk they walk
they breathe, their heart beats
notice how their eyes
come back saturated
as they blink

as though we all have holes in us
but theirs have been filled

perhaps the universe
has whispered into their ear
told them something
in a language without words
without human meaning
without three dimensional meaning
they don’t know how they know
something new lives inside
in them, in a space
that did not exist before
