partner in crime

I was the Sherlock to your
Holmes, forever searching out
your tedious, bungled
plot lines stuck in droll
archaic references, theories
in cobblestone, drove you
home from the bottled
crime scene, our Rorschach
test spilling out inky secrets
seeping blood from a silhouette
that did not point directly
to the criminal, but to always
whom you least expected.
