Jack Kristiansen




after Paul Klee’s “precision” drawings (1927)



how little the whorls

of a star’s ears

have to do with celebrity


only so prominent

the nose

is the perfect tease


the philtrum

an evocative hollow    

for enhancing the mouth


the full lips

lipsticked with promise  

fulfilling itself


those large peerless eyes

with the eyebrows lined just so

proposing yes


let’s make believe

nothing’s so becoming  

as make believe
