Secrecy

There
he takes the necessary precautions
never revealing his real name
or home number.
Always circling the block thrice
to park five blocks away
(sometimes 10 on other days).
To keep discreet indecretions discrete
he practices his little deceptions;
no matter who or where
it is all the same.
Secretly thrilling at his guilty vice
he grasps at occasional moments of pleasure
like the photo hidden beneath his locked secret drawer
