Origami

You are the origami craftsman cleverly concealing

layers

under

folds.

You only reveal your sharpest tips,

Your strongest wits

To protect inside those crumpled paper bits.

It’s a little bit

disconcerting, I should think,

That beautiful’s only whole.

But this whole time

you’ve spent alive

seems much entwined in building paper holds.

And that, I think, is something altogether bold.
