Under the Hatch


Under the hatch
Right at the back
Tucked in the crack
Of daily living
Lies the dark
Of things we push away
Shove out of sight
Away from light
In hide of things
We dare not think
About nor look at
Never own before the
Face we like to loan
For wear no tear
Or trace of what we placed
Beneath is seen
Or so it seems
But we alone
Are never fooled
We know what lies
Behind and never can forget
What we have left
Right at the back
Under the hatch
