Clifford Thompson

The Bowtie/Penguins

Sartorial, starched and sharp.
I feel great.
Dressed up in the crisp tuxedo cascade;
black and white never looked so good.
Fingernails glisten, prudent and pointy.
I smile.
Look at those teeth, how brilliant!
One thinks he popped an egg in there with the white.
