21st August 2020

Lips have ever proved enticing
Bee-stung, full, well rounded, even thin,
Every form a promise of some happenstance
A future to uplift, embarrass or enjoy.

Now they only terrorize
A simple peek conveying danger,
Even from the mouth of innocence
Breath can carry death upon its wings.
