The Face You Deserve

          the face you deserve


just as people
come to look like their dogs
you wear your sins on your face
they press and pull like gravity 
those certain muscles
for deception and solitary self-loathing
in the nights of clenched dreams
and hollow defeats – they make
you over from the inside-out
turning the mask you wear
into the one you are

of causing wrinkles?
