"I want to see you", you say.
But you are much too far away
for that; so the mystery proceeds.
"Take away the veil, and let me see."
But time and place do not agree
to show you everything
you want to know about me.
And I am not convinced
that all of this is real.
So I conceal what I can,
and reveal as little as I should,
still far less than I could.
