Life without Makeup
Mary Soon Lee

The hours not spent
Painting my skin
Provide an opportunity
To properly contemplate
The hairiness of my toes.


Poet's Notes:  I do not wear makeup and, regrettably, I do indeed have hairy toes.

Editor’s Note:  Tanka-like and humorous!  Life without Makeup” first appeared in Main Street Rag, Volume 9, Number 1, Spring 2004.
