Mother says,
“You’re a pretty little thing.
Don’t go around frowning so much.”
The puddles keep getting bigger and bigger
As I cross the road.
My knees are red and scabbed.
They cave into themselves like loveseat cushions
Whenever I poke them.
The spot between my eyebrows hurts,
But I can’t get it to shift up.
The rain soaks through my boots.
You can’t stop ruining my night.
