Hidden Letter, by Ken Pobo

Posted on Jun 17, 2017 by in June 2017 |

An alphabet with all the vowels
missing, her mother never
made sense—she founded
a religion out of will,
made her daughter Jan follow
each precept.

Jan withdrew,
moved far away.
She recognizes silences,
what others won’t
or can’t say,
provides a full alphabet
so she and others can speak,
write, and expose
any hidden letter.
