Poetry Marathon 2016, Hour Six: Sidetracked

Sixth poem of the day.

The illegible text
tricks those who aren’t paying attention
distracting them from the secret messages
hidden in plain sight
on the other side of the spread
where truths burst forth from the page
disguised as poetry

Those fixated on the decoration
know who they are

They do not know
they are missing something
