Lights Flickering
Getting closer
Squinting, pinching
Pulling at your skin
Stretching faint wrinkles
Feeling the scars
And questioning each freckle

Aquatic eyes
Smeared with charcoal
Sun-kissed skin
Buried in sand
Pearly teeth
Matted and restrained
Bitten lips
Glossed with sunscreen

You look in the mirror
And see nature’s beauty
The ocean, naturally flawed
Polluted by artificiality
