Wall Smiles

Transparency happens.
Burning ice of honesty slices into chatter.
Yet
Unmet disclosure bows to laughter
And faces with wall to wall smiles
Bare teeth
And eyes glazing
Eyes unseeing
Eyes open to only happy dainty thoughts
And not the vein torn moment of unfurled skin
Where truth speaks out
Where vulnerability reaches forth and  faces, seas of faces, leave wounds open
And we return to our lives
Unstitched.
