Stripping Off
They started carefully
gently teasing out small pieces
so not to damage what lay beneath.
It was seductive work
like a striptease
or a cut piece
a revelation
little by little.
Later on though,
they became blasé
tearing off longer strips
wanting a speedier exposure.
Thus the damage was done.
And one deep scar revealed
another layer beneath.
So they began again,
carefully at first
then scraping
and ripping
off strips
in their haste for exposure.
But still the wall refused
to give up it’s secrets.
Still the wall refused
to reveal all.
