National Poetry Month: April 12th

Three for the Mona Lisa by John Stone

1
It is not what she did
at 10 o’clock
last evening

accounts for the smile

It is
that she plans
to do it again

tonight.

2
Only the mouth
all those years
ever

letting on.

3
It’s not the mouth
exactly

it’s not the eyes
exactly either

it’s not even
exactly a smile

But, whatever,
I second the motion.
