Hourglass Justice & Beautiful Flaws

I’m not sure there is a proper explanation for this, but I wrote two poems about geometry tonight.

Hourglass Justice

hourglass justice,
aspects of people,
revelations of smooth skin
truth in your beauty
post-modern aesthetics
virtue and ripe fruit
reciprocal laughter
a tangent in circles
our infinite close points
just touch the curve.

Beautiful Flaws

pop cultural icons are
lines through a pair, you can’t be
perfect, you already are

beauty is flawed, flaws
are your beauty.
