Cipher

I found
a secret
lodged
behind a loose
wall stone
not typical
of this
geography.

It was
written in code
and a feminine
scent rose
from the ink,
which was
the rust color
of oxidized
lipstick.

All the while
the sunshine
changed
from honey
to golden
to yellow
to the norm
of invisible
light that
provides definition.
