I met with a woman I have never seen before.

Draped in loose, textured fabric

She holds up a picture that I find familiar.

It is a picture of me.

Or who I once was.

I am smiling in this photo.

For once.

What am I smiling at?

That, I could not answer.

It’s funny how,

Even a photo couldn’t jog my memory.

And isn’t a photo supposed to be worth a thousand words?

Only one word comes to mind when I look at this photo:


The dread that,

This smile will disappear soon.

And I will be left with a permanent scowl.

Oh, what a happy life.
