The Secret

by Sally Quon

The Secret

The secret was

to be kept

at all costs.

The judge said

if he did it again

it would mean prison.

We wouldn’t want

to break her heart

by sending him to prison,

would we?


there was no real

harm done.

Just some tickling

in the night.

Don’t tell your father.

It wasn’t that bad.
