Atypical Beauty

It finds itself

Creeping…lurking, vine-like, over the aged telephone poles

Thorny brambles of diseased wood

Causing a man-made construct to bloom like a cactus

Nature overtakes science and the electric pin-cushion


A beautiful contradiction unto itself

It finds itself

In the glue-edged fan of false eyelashes

That create peacock plumage out of plainly-pigmented pupils

It finds itself

In those moments,

Unexpected and lightning-flash fleeting

Where awkward smiles are sealed within cameras

And sins of the past are forgotten.
