    Once Upon A Time

    So I have learned many things, son.

    I have learned to wear many faces

    like dresses – homeface,

    officeface, streetface, hostface,

    cocktailface, with all their conforming smiles

    like a fixed portrait smile.


    And I have learned too

    to laugh with only my teeth

    and shake hands without my heart.

    I have also learned to say,’Goodbye’,

    when I mean ‘Good-riddance’:


    to say ‘Glad to meet you’,

    without being glad; and to say ‘It’s been

    nice talking to you’, after being bored.


    But believe me, son.

    I want to be what I used to be

    when I was like you. I want

    to unlearn all these muting things.

    Most of all, I want to relearn

    how to laugh, for my laugh in the mirror

    shows only my teeth like a snake’s bare fangs!


    So show me, son,

    how to laugh; show me how

    I used to laugh and smile

    once upon a time when I was like you.
