Solecism of Style

Those gigantic sunglasses
do you no favors
hiding such excellent features
that should be presented
far more prominently.
Your phenomenal peepers
could be better displayed
reflecting that blazing sun,
enhancing their natural sparkle.

In those glasses
you look like
I have never seen you:
inferior to others
anything less than exquisite.
It is the first time
you have appeared ordinary.
It is the first time
I believe I have not wanted you.

Disguising your eyes
does all of us
– the entirety of existence –
a great disservice.

Those pursed lips
pretty prominent at this instant
brazenly showing,
for all to see,
your total antipathy…
now that is something
that could use some coverage.
