No Fooling – Poetry of Power and Pleasure II

No Fooling
 
Hard edges softened
by time and tread
asphalt crumbling
concrete turning to water
smoothed stone
 
So your hard edges soften
when the camera goes dark
leather and ink are only skin
broken in and
soft
your scowl melts
water-smoothed
not fooling
anyone
