looks matter

pretty boys with curled hair

easily charm and ensnare

call me shallow but i agree;

looks indeed matter to me

how he looks in the mirror

his foresight: crystal clear

carefully dresses for work

ironing out every quirk

how he looks at the world

shedding tears for a little girl

who cannot afford basic health;

raging at billionaires’ endless wealth

how he ends up looking at me

though we may both be angry

softness in his gaze will return

gives me the love for which i yearn
