more often
it is easiest to smile
alone,
destitute,
into the mirror
half naked.

It is gratifying
when the obviousness
of great pretending
is revealed.

but maybe similar
to tenuous, craven fingers

which play bruised cafe pianos
part and tuck back hair
caress champagne flutes
or clench into fists.
