Two Poems Regarding a Smile

by mudrhetoric

Smile 1

If I understand anything
It was nothing
A glance across a room
Misinterpreted
Leads to rejection
I’ve abandoned notions of happiness

Smile 2

My growth was stunted as a child
I never learned to behold
That coy smile
Lips pursed and drawn
I contemplate Camus’s mystery
