FILM NOIR



I know secrets
tucked away in perpetuity
that are too dangerous for the world 
to reveal

and so do you


I wonder whose secrets
would make the world
blow up faster...

yours or mine?

  3. Secrets are a burden specially when they have the potential to set the world on fire. When it all becomes too much I suppose a person could last tango him/herself in Timbuktu :)

  6. Good question and one can never at all be sure even of the consequences. Somehow the adverse feelings seem to overwhelm!

  11. Rather appropriate for the whole Facebook/Cambridge Analytica kerfaffle at this moment in time - I think our secrets are now known by the whole internet, certainly by election campaigns!
