Foundation

 

The mask I wear

sometimes

more often than not of late.

Slippery yet drying

it clings to me

like I cling to the idea

of youth

lingering on inside

my sun-damaged face.

 

Foundation

is a base layer

a building block

for the other visual lies

I present to the world

or tell myself.

 

Foundation

shouldn’t just come from a bottle

or stick

or revolutionary solid block.

 

Foundation

is what you’re made of

not what you make-up.
