A mouth

What? Me? I'm happy today. Couldn't be better, honestly. My smile? It's tentative because it's new to me, this smile I've got. I'm not wearing it, I've got it --it's mine.

It's more a piercing than a tattoo, but it's mine, and it's here for a while --I like the way it highlights my lips, my nose. Don't you think?

I realize there's always gonna be troubles, but this new set of troubles is new --nothing feels like trouble yet.

I think this grin, it'll do okay.
