The Poet and the Beauty Queen
Perfection sways before him
In focus a moment, blurry the next
Like a mirage mimicking an oasis
Before a dried, thirsty, loveless soul…
She’s not necessarily Happiness
Or Pleasure’s perfect image.
There’s a lot good skin can hide.
The pretty face is the devil’s best mask
Love is a soul thing not a look thing.
What’s it with Poets and lonesomeness?
