The Big Reveal
Are you ready for this.
Have you thought of it upon waking
every morning. What do you think
we will show you.
Is there a truck blocking it, shielding
you from seeing what is behind its flank.
And then horizontal blinds,
dangling from the telephone wires.
Two men carrying a pane of frosted glass.
What magical series of obstructions
prevents you from seeing too soon.
The scarf wrapped around your eyes.
The hands beneath the scarf.
Your eyes behind their lids.
At the moment of the big reveal,
knowledge will pour down
from the sky like light.
Remember, it will look different.
Remember, you might feel unsettled.
We’ve turned the cameras off.
You won’t want to be watched.
This is your moment.
