Tableau of slow contempt



Pantomime parody
Impersonating mimic
Mocking taunt of slow contempt
Spoofing disrespect
Beguile jesting jeer
Scorn flaunting sneer
Performing razz in a mirror
Imitate a caricature to satirize

The tableau painted in blue
A mimic drowns in wine
Grapes bubble in
Flooding an imaginary glass cube

The powdery white face silently screams
White gloves grasp for invisible lines
Tracing glass outlines
Silent screams echo off glass walls

Pantomime parody
Impersonating mimic
Mocking taunt of slow contempt
Spoofing disrespect
Beguile jesting jeer
Scorn flaunting sneer
Performing razz in a mirror
Imitate a caricature to satirize

The tableau painted blood red
Black, white and blue
The mime starts to rise
Dead, lifeless and poetic

The cube bursts
Slowly cracking at first
Out floods the wine
Dead mime, white glove and powder gone

Pantomime ends with broken glass
Crushed grapes and washed faces
Everyone has a story
Every one of them a lie

Pantomime parody
Impersonating mimic
Mocking taunt of slow contempt
hard to judge the truth between the lines

Every one has a story ... Every one of them is a lie.
