Manners

Have you ever seen that face
Where upon seeing it
Your eyes become hummingbirds
And the face a garden?
You flit around the tiger lily
Eyes.
Drink sweet nectar from the honeysuckle
Birthmark.
Pollinate the lamb’s ear
Brow.

Have you ever seen that face
Where you long use your
Lips to see?
Feeling the moss of hairline,
The steep slope of nose,
The tawny sand of cheeks,
The uninhabited caves of mouth’s corners.
Where you lips need to touch everything but
Lips.

I’ve seen that face;
But staring isn’t polite.

If any of my muses ever found out who they were I would die a death of a thousand humiliations
