The Lips
Dee Allison

Lips are on the lower part of the face,
Open, they are called the mouth,
they allow textures in to taste but
fridges do not add lockdown weight
or open mouths let voice out when speaking,
Curses and smiles all forgotten
Some lips are filled with gel,
Some lips just naturally full,
Some are thin and some wrinkled,
Some lips are painted and many are not
Faces are all half missing,
smiles or sadness now unseen,
unless shown in the eyes used for expressions,
The blank stare is all you're given
behind a multitude of coloured coverings
Nose, mouth and chin are all a Mystery.
