༺ Sunshine & Shadow ༻

posh clothes

what is it
about posh clothes?
maybe people need
to dress it up?
the pitiful perjury
the cruelty
in cufflinks

silks and stockings
and makeup
to take her vows
I gave her

smell the starch in the surplice
smooth ironed vestments
God knows
but the hypocrisy
in shining raiment
that’s what really shocks

over Windsor knots
forked tongues
satin sheen
their pockets

“Bullingdon Club”

The Routinis, Oxford jugglers, Ric, Richie and me, were hired for the summer ball that this photo was taken at. We performed for this bunch of bastards!
