smile!

20131014-221751.jpg
a friend said, ‘smile!’
but how
how does one smile

can one smile without there being any happiness
let me put on a mask and paint a carmine red smile
let me take up a tube of paint, smear it on cardboard lips and smile

let your insistence cease my dear? look! I smile!
let the questions drop o girl! look! I smile!
isn’t it a dazzling smile!
