On Getting Dolled Up, and the Nature of Caring.

On some days you wake up,
Tired,
shy,
a little uncaring.

On those days, you may neglect yourself a little;
throw up your hair,
haphazardly wash your face.

On those days,
you do not paint on your armor.
No bright lips or piercing eyes or smooth,
peerless skin.

No, on those days, you wear the things
that are just appropriate enough to pass
unnoticed.

It is on those days,
of course,
that you meet beautiful people.

It is on those days that you learn,
that the time for caring,
is every day.

Today was one of those days,
and so:
Lesson learned.
