Bad Side

Bad Side

By JD DeHart.

Don’t get on his bad side,
they say, and I picture
a crimson impish composure
along one side, the mustache
twisted up in a cartoonish
rogue fashion. Meanwhile,
the other side, the side we
see and know, exists as a front
for that schemer we can only
manage to chuckle at,
that semi-villainous version.
