faking a smile

Faking a Smile

It’s never
too late to
toss old
notions.


To come
around to
a new
way of
seeing things.


To recant
repent &
repeal your
pleas &
demands.


Change isn’t
out of
the question.


Spruce up
& it’s
yours.


I sense
you’re not
buying it.


I sense
you’ve reeled
into the
black pit
of experience.


& yet…
it’s still
there,
that gleam
in your
eye.


Miles past
wishful thinking,
you fake
a smile.
