I just have that face
people feel they should be
cruel to.
I was asked once if I was angry
when I was deeply
sad;

I just have that face
people feel they should be
cruel to.
I should smile,
they say,
to make them feel better,
of course.
But what are they going to do
to make me feel better?
Nothing,
of course.
Are they willing to listen?
Could they even handle it?
Nope.
At least tell a damned joke.
Maybe then I'll have a reason to smile
during this neverending
smile season.
