This is dedicated to my very own “Smile Collector.” Thank you for your years of friendship and smile collecting. I thought this bore repeating. The fact you put up with me is amazing.
There’s a special kind of smile that is hard to collect.
The ones on the ground can be challenging.
You’d assume they’d be the ones waiting for you, but they were dropped.
A dropped smile is at first suspicious.
It may look like a smirk.
It could be a half smile.
Eventually, you gain its trust.
But by that time you won’t want to put it on a shelf,
Or in a bottle,
Or in a trophy case.
In fact, you might end up wearing it- everyday.
