318: Hide-and-Seek 1933

"Hide-and-Seek 1933"
Galway Kinnell

Once when we were playing
hide-and-seek and it was time
to go home, the rest gave up
on the game before it was done
and forgot I was still hiding.
I remained hidden as a matter
of honor until the moon rose.

I wish I wasn't in this place.
