A LOOK INSIDE

Not long after his nose was fixed
Was he finally satisfied?
The oil immersed solid grey makeup
The once untouchable breasts and the wrinkled faces
How they resemble a vacant memory
This day covers him erasing every shadow
Studying a shaped outline being sensitive to himself
Encircle brushed off time to paint the visible
Shrugging off astonishing noises
From the athletic game
In the countryside pastures beneath
Shaking off the discarded ponders
By the amethyst water bed
Once where great past lovers
Had a romance pledged
From so long-ago,
All the hurdle of red extroverted livelihood
The direct treachery
Amalgamation of green and orange
The vacillating hands
And the depleted shoes in this concealed cottage
A tangible poet chooses to believe
You will arrive tonight
