One on top of the other

von Christa Layr

Many layers hide or wrap
whatever is inside.
It might, of course, turn out as trap
not taken in a stride.

When coating covers sheet by sheet
so that you can’t see through
there is indeed surprise to meet
which might then startle you.

The fascination to detect
a secret scarcely seen
makes curious what to expect
when you unwrap the sheen.
