winter grimace

cold lips are forced up
when frigid air bites your cheeks
strangers smile like friends

No 5-7-5

I thought a woman was smiling at me yesterday until I realized that my own mouth had been forced into a fake smile by the chilly air. Fake it ’til you make it, right? It’s day 13 of NaHaiWriMo.
