Hour 21 – Villain

Candle flames flicker in dark eyes.
Shadows cast by eyeglass frames
Carve out a sinister fa├žade.

All it takes are the right accessories
To transfigure your soft, geeky persona
Into something villainous.

  1. I love both the playfulness and the visual quality of this poem. It resonates like a still still shot in a good film.

    first stanza verbs flicker, cast, carve are like steps leading me into the conclusion. fun!
