2020-08-15 – Smiling Sore

i was door mat-
a lowered
flag,

couldn’t fetch my eyes
through the wet
tea bags,

it left the skin too
soft to handle
any touch,

never mind a lethal
dose of real
life love,

i’m a squeaky floor-
the venerated
poor,

with dilated
pores,

++++

can you see the grin
beneath my
sores?
