cheese

do not be fooled by the dimples
they merely serve as a diversion
are actually a genetic flaw
the result of facial muscle deformity
and come and go at whim, appearing with
a sneeze or a cough or the letter “s”
instead pay attention to my eyes
if they are getting smaller
as the dimples get deeper
then I’m really smiling
