Was it there as I kissed my husband goodbye this a.m.?
Black and endearing.

Was it there as I sat through morning briefing?
Proud and shouting.

Was it there at luncheon with my boss?
Stiff and preening.

Was it there when I did my presentation?
Aloof and sneering.

Was it there when I met my child’s teacher after school?
Curled and amusing.

Was it there when I had dinner with my in-laws?
Precious and spewing.

It’s there on my chin in the bathroom mirror tonight.
I’m sure no one noticed?

Please, God!
