Makeup

A Poem by Yue Zhang

Paper a smile on that pallet
with rouge, pastel apples
Shadow your lids, to stand out
purple, black, and blue
thickly line the edges, wing it
white like an angle's halo, on the corners
Brighten the gloom, on the surface
who cares what's on the inside,
darken the brows, they line the face
appear bold, sure, like you're not insecure.
Curl and brush, with sticky black goo
feels heavy, heavy heart
spriz spriz, one last look
reflection check, good enough to step outside
pray no water ruins the day
