Three for the Mona Lisa

I love this poem:

Three for the Mona Lisa

1

It is not what she did
at 10 o’clock
last evening

accounts for the smile

It is
that she plans
to do it again

tonight.

2

Only the mouth
all those years
ever

letting on.

3

It’s not the mouth
exactly

it’s not the eyes
exactly either

it’s not even
exactly  a smile

But, whatever,
I second the motion
