    He got a knack for this ish~
    thinks he can withold his tru identity
    even from me...
    afraid he is- to disclose
    what he's feeling
    his heart is dancing with dark
    shadows that are blocked by the
    light of his own soul
    it's easier for him
    to conceal the truth - acting
    as though he were a drug smuggler
    moving kilos of contraband
    across the border
    Can you see him?
    there he is-
    If you can't I'll paint
    a better picture for ya
    that's him over there-
    wearing a tyte shirt
    that's dry-cleaned and pressed
    full of mis-rep-re-sent-ation
    the pants he's got on are labeled
    'obscurity' - or is that the name of his cologne?
    decked out from head-to-toe he is
    in a 2 piece sable hued costume of disguise
    Who are you?
    At one time I thought
    I knew~
    I'm no longer certain
    but let me peg you
    He is an inverse created by my obverse
    just a counterpart full of propositions-
    obtained by changing
    like a Chamaeleon;
    no, not the animal-
    the constellation;
    represented in the Southern Hemisphere
    I followed him there
    he is always exchanging the affirmative
    for the negative quality
    of our intended meeting-- meaning
    negating the predicate
    -You deny me,
    but I defy logic
    or shall I say - I see you watching me,
    but I'm not even looking at you...
    inconspicuous isn't just for you
    it's also a word that describes me-
    cause I too, have learned to be
    'N'cognito

    N2 -

    This has got to be the lyrics to a song! WOW!

    "1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000"

    (who wants a ten?)

    one love, blakverb

    GQ~

    got your shirt (misrepresentation)
    got your pants (obscurity)
    and you were on your way - Incognito or 'N2'cognito?
    which one? your pick....
