but what if you've lost your face
what if all you have left are a few strands of hair sticking out your guts
Brush and paint your

Ten Things I Hate About You
1. I hate that you make plans with me, but you only make them to break them.
I understood the scarf tied around your head when I watched you tug at it. The scantily threaded scarf you could hardly trade almost giving way yet you were barely worn out from all that wearing.
I understood because I could see my reflection on the face of your scarf. Myself all worn and torn from exhaustion more than from age. Exhausted from your preferential treatment of scorn and judgement.
