Platonic Love Poem

sometimes you think you’ve known someone
and give to them your kindliness
- a little wooden clown  
with permanent smile -  
but look again to see  
they’ve taken  
and they’ve stamped on it  
  
the lesson being this:  
that friends can break your heart  
just as lovers do  
   
the little clown with broken plywood legs  
beneath rainbow trousers

and made-up caved-in face  
with pieces of smile  
stuck to the sole of a shoe
