Joker

When lipsticked curtains opened,
he assembled 32 misplaced pieces of calcium,
and
a pair of whithered rose petals,
brushed in deep red,
for the last act of his life,
giving away borrowed smiles,
as if trying to…
tame the pain,
raging to flood,
every inch of his plastered face…

A showman he was,
like a jar of caged fireflies glittering a bulb,
extracting funny expressions from the wrinkled pulp,
taking crowd of emotions on a comic high,
and just near the peak,
he let the tears fall free from the sky. act ended, backstage mourned,
audience roared …

He used the tragedy of life once again,
to make the melancholies have their last laugh…
