a hiding star - My Art Journal 2011-07-2 #039

a hiding star by Missy Poem


He hid for years,

I would see him through the window

Entering and leaving his house,

In and out, quickly,

And I wondered.


He was wearing a funny hat

And always preening himself like a woman,

Sometimes I was jealous

Of how feminine he looked.


I think he saw me looking

And he loved it.


The man from the window opposite

Would lock himself in his home,

Without friends

Without lovers.

He thought he was ugly,

But I …

I saw him shining like a star.
