Subtleties and Secrets

It’s some lack of
a glint in their eyes.
Oh, the boys stand
in a closed circle
as they always do
with wide grins and
open laughter. But
they seem more nervous
than they did back
in the fifth grade; the
telltale signs are
only subtleties, but
they’re there.

Subtleties are secrets
like contraband from the
Ai of old. And true to
the nature of who the
boys are, will become, and
all of us in general, the
boys fall in love with
their secrets like they
might have with a lover.

And what’s this? The
Devil resides in the irony.
