Blemishes -
stray marks on the skin
dark circles under the eyes
pores, too large for public viewing

Paint -
especially designed to hide the flaws
and provide a mask
to cover all those defects that would

Detract -
from my natural beauty.
It takes one hour
sometimes more
depending on the lighting

Covered -
in layers of make-up provided
by Revlon or Cover Girl;
blush for the cheeks,
highlights for the eyes

Botox -
the next step when make-up
is not enough to hide the affects
of life upon my face.
