Best Poem of William Cavanagh

A Face Is A Mirror Of The Mind

Honorable Confucius used to say
A face is but a mirror of one's mind
I believe my observations to this day
Upon the many faces I did find
With les yeux of dark despair
Pouting facial lines that I have seen
An icy stoic stare, a gruesome glare
An attitude, murderously mean
For your welfare there is no feeling
To hang you high and by the neck
With rough rouges there is no dealing
But to render you a human wreck
First impressions Confucius may well warn you
Trust and confide ni-ni Christian, Muslim or a Jew

Brunette Sunset Ii

Seeking solace from a heated holiday
Where young and seasoned come-forth to play
Tactically poised below the willow tree
The margaritas begot a twist of liberty

My brown eyed angel free and fair
You surrender beneath my whiskered strength
I feast upon your buffed body’s length
Ample, burnished-tanned and debonair

[Hata Bildir]
