Thumb and index finger
on the handle - relaxed
arms and legs, a cool look;
sunglasses and long hair.
Mona Lisa two hours before,
in a gallery - a smile, a frown.
Notes on paper, the final word -
espresso, classicism, and her.
So they have much in common,
a color, a light - but what of nothing
in the broken air of night? Simple
is what you want - forget it then.
