Clowning

Clowning

 

 

saline obscurities

evoke no sympathy,

so dry and powder your face,

clown white, masquerade,

painted smile, but guilty as charged!

 

Vow future silence, your private sins purged!

Perhaps surreptitiously, you violated your own

basic instructions. Therefore, I cannot condone

this circus.

No more clowning around.

Accounts Receivable

Accounts Receivable

 

What do you do when

your return on investments

don’t even come close?

Love is unconditional,

it’d be nice to break even!

 

Is it just selfish

to desire love in return?

It’s not a contest,

to see who can love the most,

there’s no balance sheet for love.
