New Questions Asked

Just before dawn…

  the answers came

 

And dressed in drag,

  they spoke my name

 

They claimed their place

  though none was offered

 

They stole a space,

  their masks on backwards

 

Just before dawn…

  the answers came

 

Stalking my query

  with falsehoods named

 

But in my wake,

  their lies would drown

 

The truth unanswered

   —new questions found
