Like Venus


 

Like Venus 

 

You stand statuesque,

Like a masterpiece beauty.

Men discuss your smile,

Or lack thereof, as it were,

Making you so damn angry.



 

Into the Distance

 

Along the roadside

A taut high wire beckoning

Power lines reach far

Mystery in each atom

Beckoning us all onwards

 

 

Like Venus 

 

You stand statuesque,

Like a masterpiece beauty.

Men discuss your smile,

Or lack thereof, as it were,

Making you so damn angry.

 

 

Rusting

 

Drip-drop-drip of tears

Results in oxidation

Of all that they touch
