Squinty Eyes

The one thing

I can say that has changed

Since the day long ago

On which my innocence was lost

Is that my eyes no longer squint close when I smile or laugh

I don’t know when this quirk disappeared

I only just realized

The girls

The ones

I want

Have stopped

Commenting on it


I don’t know


Can’t help


What else
