Clowning


Costumed men trying
Desperately to impress
Costumed paramours

Bad jokes and humors
Fake lashes and furtive eyes
Laughter dissembling

Comb overs, up-do’s
Bad cologne, perfume and lies
False codes and signals

Compacts and powder
Cold sores and blisters, lip gloss
Peroxide and lies

We hide from our fears
Clowning, overconfident
Scuffed shoes and threadbare
