She dabs concealer on the nonhuman pimples that bear patches of limelight-seeking kin, asexual or hermaphroditic in the sense that if there is one or two, more will soon follow.

She hides her inferior lips, rabbits in a hat of Dior's Winter Rose.

She finishes her painting, the last strokes being the obligatory smile and self-doubt signing its name.
