"It's a bit complex," he says.
She staring in the mirror,
analyzing her pores, tugging
at the laugh lines that make
her want to cry.

He's in the bedroom pulling on
his pants going on about
some scientific discovery he
read about yesterday, oblivious to
his own uneven complexion.

April PAD Day 22 - complex


  1. I love your situational subject matter! This poem reminds me of the difference in the way that men see themselves compared to the way women see themselves (generally, of course - one size does not fit all in color or gender!).

  2. This was cinematic in that I could see the shifting camera angles, the perspectives. SO good, so on the nose. Excellent.
