Under Construction

The young woman
(Ignoring the blue sky and passing greenery,
The misty vistas of an early Saturday morning)
Proceeds to transform her face
With a variety of Lily Lo products -
Brushes, powders, lotions.

After thirty minutes
Her spotty, pale face has given way
To unnatural pink
She paints on a scowl
Beneath the table I notice
Her heavy brown boots
