Sugar Sprinkles

Sunday, April 18, 2010

In this face there are many colours combined,
minute specks of sweetness
but each one individually defined.

Would I could call them out by name,
and characteristics, but
in totality they make up one whole face,

Together, they seem better, than apart,
dropping off, they would be lost,
losing their background host.

What meaning in this face?
Is it a kind of speckled grease- paint clown,
laughing with good humour at his new found
multi-coloured skin?

Or is he a face-cake
with sweet icing sprinkles to be eaten,
one lick at a time?
