Undercover

It’s been quiet for so long,
you forgot you’re undercover;
you painted your walls,
you bought some plants,
you got a library card and a job

and when the door bell rings,
you get up from the table,
leave your friends to their meal

there’s a man with a forgotten face
and a pizza you didn’t order:
you used a wrong gesture
last night at the bar,
you blew you cover,
and you need to leave right now —
