Attractive Distractions

like a magician's left hand
life is but a distraction,

light in it's many vibrant hues
can blind and mystify, it is
but a distraction for the dark
that lies within.

slits up a dancer's dress
expose the skin, for there is flesh to cover,
a painted smile on a clown's face,
hides a million cries.
