Are these sentences OK? What's underneath that cover? What have you got underneath that cover? I'll confess I have an appetite. / Let me confes I have an appetite. I will never step into that town again. I find your reticence baffling about it. Your feet never touch anything over there but concret.

I wonder if, 'Your feet never touch anything over there but concret.' means an urban/city environment with a sense of lack of any natural environment? A negative comment about life in a big city perhaps?

What's underneath that cover?✅ An alternative is, "What's beneath that cover". What have you got underneath that cover?✅ 'beneath' is an alternative here as well. I'll confess I have an appetite. / Let me confes I have an appetite. I confess I have an appetite. Let me confess, I have an appetite. I will never step into that town again.✅ More natural to say, "I'll never step foot into that town again". I find your reticence baffling about it. I find your reticence baffling. Your feet never touch anything over there but concrete.✅ What you wrote is ok, but formal. More natural is, "Your feet only touch concrete over there"
