Misanthrope

By brian francis

Devious eyes
watch every turn.
smoldering hate
effuses from within.
A smile conceals
the bastardly conceit
that drives
desires of domination.
Seductions face
is comely and coy
beckoning and stroking
the most basic of needs.
Self-image the weakness,
exploited with ease.
A smile — the door swings open.
