your glittered face pops up on my screen
my guts coil around themselves
sick
I’ve been avoiding this, your smile, your life
but I know you better than that
this is not how you stand when you’re comfortable
you usually look like a flamingo
but there in all your X Pro II glory you look
tense
and when you’re happy, and I mean when you’re really happy
your eyes crunch in at the sides
but you stand in your squad pose
both feet planted like you’ll fall off the planet
head raised looking behind the camera
as if this wasn’t scripted
crunchless
