True Face

I kinda want to paint

A portrait

Of how I’ve been described

To my face

By other people

Just to have a good, hearty laugh

–becky style

I think I’d have to give myself

Longer hair

Then I’d probably add

40-60 pounds of pure, imported

Whale lard

Then I’d have to give myself

A sweet appearance

Either by

Peppering me with actual sweets

Or

Putting me in a soft and cushy oversized sweater

Like the one I spent all of my education wearing

With a brown pair of

Clogs that need repairing

Ahh yes

The portrait is starting to take shape

I’ve never met this person

But she would be more

Readily recognized

Than I am with my true face
