dirty faces

mrs. lipstick?

friend, i'm listening to your teacher read the story. eyes forward please.

but- but- you have brown dirt on your nose. she says with wonder, leaning in to study my face.


an immediate check in the mirror reveals nothing but freckles - something fairly rare at our diverse school. it was that exact moment i realized i'd forgotten make-up this morning.

*sigh* it's been that kind of week.
