3 peachy keen

I was vainly staring at myself in the mirror and when I realized that my face seemed longer I laughed. It’s not a bad thing. Enjoy.

I know I am older

I stare into my own eyes confused
This is me.
I know.

But I glean over the imperfections
(The ones that I find perfect)
and notice high cheekbones
displaced fat
scars from pimples
awkward finely tuned eyebrows
eyeliner that hasn’t been removed
plump lips

“oh my god”

my skin glows a warm red
My face is ripe.

it can only go downhill from here

I smile.
