Writing Tips: DeconstructionIt's time to talk about parody's twin brother: the deconstruction. Actually, it's more like a ying-yang thing. Everything that parody would not be good at tackling, deconstruction should work fairly well, and vice-versa. This means that deconstruction is better when it's target is something that you specifically don't like. The object of a deconstruction is to apply real-life consequences to a fictional cliche or comedy, and for some reason they almost always get a higher praise than parody, even though parody is harder to do, does it for less respect, and can say multiple different things.

tousled like it's been
blown back from the wind
in soft sideways strokes
across his forehead.
his eyes are usually
but damn, when he smiles,
they transform into these
two shining green temple lights,
their corners crinkled
with a small scar
above the right one
and an embarrassing story behind it.
their reflections are
sometimes masked with those
(in the event that he hasn't lost them,
two tiny ears sit on
either side of
with faint freckles
from long days spent
in the sun
at the farm where he works,
his body star-dotted
along its upward edges:
arms, shoulders, back
all spotted with the flecks
of summer warmth

cupid's bow like a curved weapon
guarding its base.
his lips thin, soft stretches
of pink foreign fruit above the
straight knife of his jaw.
two small rounded moles
like a vampire bite
at the crux of his throat.
