Limited Time Engagement

Like a clown
I’m a terribly precise fool
whose mistake bears a magnitude
makeup cannot conceal

I swallowed what fire I felt
spit back smoke and mirrors
lousy attractions
designed to keep you distorted

I made you my beard of a lady
my measure for others
I had to meet
when missing you was too much

I blindfolded myself
lest I actually see the words
I threw at your outline
the apple stuck neatly on top

This is not an apology
it’s a proposal
so for now be my circus
that I might run away and join you
