my face shows everything
it is as fact-laden as a documentary
but my love...woman that she be...
(and they all are sisters...whatever their cattiness
toward each other)
she and they all create themselves...
the beautiful face a fiction
that expresses all truth as lies
and makes you understand why
you have no chance to change the world
when it is so much easier
and kinder to submit
and the sadness of your face
confirms the mask
