You’re always tired but you stay up too late
and drag yourself out of bed too early
and lather and rinse and repeat.
And there’s always that piece of hair that annoys you,
that you shove into place with bobby pins
And sometimes, you think of ways
to make the circles under your eyes go away,
or maybe fix the paleness of your hands,
or the slight yellow of your teeth,
but then you say, “f*** it,”
and climb back into your wonderland.
