Le Sofa, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, 1894-96

Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts, NYC 


I should not be so coy
as to fall for a ploy
for this could be my downfall.

I should be so intelligent
not to understand what was really meant
for this could be a disaster.

I should be so smart
not to open my heart
for this could be my destruction.

I should be so wise
not to look in your eyes
for this could be my Alamo.

I should be so clever
never to say never
for you could be my deliverance.
