making up

Photo by Daniel Páscoa on Unsplash
when you look into the mirror
contouring your lips
your eyes
your cheeks,
do you see a you
that is in control?
does it
hide the fact that
while you have a say
you can never do.
it is always yay to the yes's
and nay to the no's?

when you step out
wearing your gogo glasses
flowy pastel shades
strappy sandals
floating within a cloud of Premier Jour
within that cloud
do you get validation
from second glances?

when you have got it all off
at bedtime
and you turn away from the mirror
and walk to your side of the bed
float your good nights to each other
does your mutual  indifference
rest between your bodies like a
bolster built into the mattress?
