faces


we give ourselves our faces
we kind of draw them for ourselves
with our smiles and laughter
frowns and tears
scrunchy noses
squinty eyes
wide open eyes
wiggly eyebrows
and all the wrinkles
wrinkles which tell of our lives.
how happy or unhappy it was
we make our own faces
careful how you draw yours.
