happy secret

We hold a happy secret,
you and I.
As yet invisible,
imperceptible
except as two thin
purple lines.
Soon this secret will
most likely make me sick-
but not like other
secrets might-
a healthy sick (there is
such a thing).
We hold it now,
like a butterfly lit
on our open hands:
awe-struck.
