Accidentally Amazing

sometimes it is the imperfections
that lend a warming, genuine quality
to that which is otherwise sterile
or coldly uniform

these tantalizing trifles
form an order
comprised of imprecision

the way she walked a little pigeon-toed
the cowlick in his hair

all the more so
when contrast with an otherwise
nearly pristine composition

a tangle of lustrous curls
laying sweaty
against her powdered cheek
accentuates her beauty
more than the best posing or framing ever could

nothing intentional about it
just nature’s little raspberry
when Mona Lisa turned her head

– Phoenix Aradia
