My face is an open window,

The display always lit.

The title above reading

'Free emotions,

Step right up.'


My feelings are wide open

Like a dead animal lying on a lab table.

Anatomical position,

The students hovering above with

Their scalpels and pins.


"There's the empathy,"

a boy says to his partner.

"There's the embarrassment,

Happiness, lust, confidence, and greed,"

Replies the other, pointing.


I am more exposed than a middle schooler

In the swimming class locker room.

My sentiments are transparent,

But they are not yours, so please‒

Don't look.
