Poetic Series: Morning Face | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
Your flushed pale face
reflecting in the mirror
awaits the shadowed trace
of Revlon lip color.
Ghostly beauty in the shadow
of mascara, liner and lipstick.
Rituals that follow each morrow,
beauty far from cryptic.
Let my fingertips run
and smear those tar-lined eyes.
Your tongue and lips: depraving fun,
concocting my demise
with geisha-like temptations
and conquering with powdered passions.
