How It Works For Irony

As simple words
pole-danced in smoke,
false hopes blear
under risque lights
and all the white stars
were only daggers
perforating our skies

Hearts in full throttle
enhance courage,
strop naïveté;
this is how it works,
how it works for irony

Swim through licorice
and sweat in trepidation,
two steps forward and
steadfast in the backward topple
until you feel asleep in forlorn
and in the morning wake up
and wonder which splinter broke
