His Nose

The nose he wears sits on his head
It's big and round and very red;
And in the dark it always glows
It must be awful to own that nose.
There's two dark holes filled with hair
With whatever else that's hidden there;
Each time I see with great surprise
That glow that sits between his eyes.
It shines as though when night meets day
There never could be another way;
I wonder too if he can tell
If red affects his sense of smell. 
Perhaps the problem is I think
He's had in time too much to drink;
I suggested then to paint it white
And he seemed to think this was alright.

    I must say I was browsing your library of poetry and I was a bit taken by the name of this one. I thought you were referring to a clown at first, but then I realized it was a fairly deep poem about what I think is abuse of alcohol. Anyway, I was captivated and impressed, and just a little disgusted!  -KMD

    Oh man, is this a "Werewolf Falls in Love" entry? If not, I b'lieve it should be. (fyi, I rarely use the word "should". If you don't believe that, search through the on-line evidence. LOVE the po, eliz! Beauty eve to ya~N

    LOL LOVE the humor, Elizabeth. I had a friend who drank a lot, but I don't think he would have allowed me to paint his nose white. (Actually, I was thinking of Rudolph the reindeer in the beginning.) Very clever and witty! Love, Carolyn

    Elizabeth... This takes people watching to a whole new and interesting level. This nose is the nucleous!Te narcisstic point of the face beheld by the watcher pointing to the person /character of the person that is opened up in the last line. Gotta hand it to you. It's really cool!Love it. I will give this a shot myself sometime because of your inspiration.

[YOu inspired me shoosh!] Light & Love

    "There's two dark holes filled with hair - with whatever else that's hidden there;" Wonderful! If he's had that much to drink, why then anything would be alright. This one made my day. Love, daver
