yearbook
photographs stained color
polaroid on a laminated
piece of plastic
too many of us lose
& too many security
guards do(n't) check.

it's tomorrow
during homeroom
thank god
but i still don't know
what to wear.
something cute?
something fun?
of course my make-up will be
done just
right
right
right.

& then like always
I'll fake smile for
whatever unlucky soul has
the pleasure to press a button
& zoom a flash in my face
(maybe it'll just be bright enough
to melt the smirk off yours)

those fucking yearbook
photographs.
