Poetic Lure

 

masquerading as lovers of poetry

lovers of spring, lovers of lore

lemon yellow primrose galore

seducing art for sake of sophistry

 

camera masquerading as time

click to capture, click to fade

memory is a mistress in cage

nostalgia fine wrapped in wine

 

dressed to kill shot heart down

killing to sale, killing sold out

heart pulse on a beating bout

lost love to shy and timid clown

 

breathing a poem for fresh air

sieve every reason to be unfair
