NUDE

BY EUAN KIDSTON

Of all the possible methods of expression, a genuine
Smile uses fewer muscles than this
Mask I put on to cover up the shame that came with knowing this once innocent
Adventure has come to its abrupt end,
Not one promise has been fulfilled for a year or more, and
The memory of your face
Has all but gone, but for a few photos from before the surgery, and I am
Undressed as Adam hiding behind shrubbery,
Sheepishly I too do not know where it is you should look
