Kiss 2

The clown
Who dances and does
Cart wheels on a coir mattress
Glows in lust and sedates to love
Smiles ear to ear – every time one creature
Walks towards him
And paints his cheekbones with blush
That too only until she solicits a pantomime
From a perennial lip-jester
Slapping two lips to the folly and droll
Of a harlequin kiss
