given a choice, oh it is far better to turn a town
into a nest of crazy hornets than to lounge
in a flowerbed labeled acceptance.
Anyone who had to keep relocating
to other countries because of creations
deemed unclean and threatening public
decency earns hands down high contender
status for a coveted biography;
no wonder the smile in the portrait.
Knew what he loved. Plunged headlong and drew.
Showed the decent exquisite cunnilingus.
Knowing in private, protesting tongues
had better things to say like nothing;
went silent. No wonder the smile.
