Green-Hearted Discretion

Should  we be asked
how many broken hearts
can be found
in a private collection,
would we  recount them all?
Would we reveal their real number
or would we stumble with our words
and have our clumsy hesitation mistaken
for a memory loss?
Wouldn’t  we wish
we could  withhold  the answer
to simplify an unflattering  reaction?
A circle of silence should  proclaim
the  deserved  moderation  
summoned  to publicly  restore  
the lost tokens of innocence,
our defeated good nature,
sinned against by our infamy gestures
or wounded solitudes.
Standing ovations and shiny rewards
will go to anyone
whose supreme sacrifices,
seemingly reduced,
have  been recycled and reused
to pay  for  the  damage.
