Why are you cruel?
yes you,
to your beauty,
a little art
of face touch up
wouldn’t hurt,
or are you scared
of stirring up
our senses?
making our pore
hair on edge, standing erect?
unlocking our minds
from the shackles
of insatiable drought
while imagination
flow like a spring of
fresh water
as the world
fades away?
wouldn’t hurt either.
