I woke up this morning
and curled my hair
and put some lipstick on my face.
I was out of foundation
(forgot to get more the last time I was at the drugstore)
so I went without
The dark circles under my eyes exposed for the world to see.
I put on my dress
Blue and floral
and my new heeled sandals from the store.
I supposed I looked pretty enough
for random men to call me baby
but not enough for anyone to look
a second time.
