Kisses & Hankies

A Villanelle

Kisses and hankies, that embarrassing tax
contemporary executives prefer to ignore
an award-winning creativity often exacts.

“Hail our team, their trophies on racks,
movers and shakers the public wants more!”
Kisses and hankies, that embarrassing tax

is never spotlighted amongst brass tacks –
except, when proven the lucrative spore
an award-winning creativity often exacts.

It’s time we blow up disingenuous smack
to honor a truth we can finally adore.
Kisses and hankies, that embarrassing tax

will mend the soul sporting critical cracks,
and subtle a spirit, riddled and sore,
an award-winning creativity often exacts

Hold high the coin, the invoice, the facts:
these are the whole’s conceivable core
kisses and hankies, that embarrassing tax
an award-winning creativity often exacts.
