The Monkey

door killea


When she was born
umbilical cut, a jagged knife
clown said we'll give her a monkey
a tricky little companion for life

the early years
the imp did his worst
a little conjuring
only play at first

honing his skills
through all her years
his sleights of hand
her oceans of tears

every now and then
raising his devious head
creating chaos all around
troubles, heavy as leadů

she laughs and laughs
so hard until she cries
farce of sorrows laid bare
in the depths of her eyes

    I searched on Google for the meaning of 'imp'. Also looked for 'sleights' and 'conjuring'.

    Whoever this monkey may be, he or it is not good.
    killea: indeed he/it isn't Christine
