Don't ever forget you have the nicest smile
No matter the others, with their fine clothes,
their fat wallets; no matter that they sleep in
on silk pillowcases, or that framed diplomas
from the best universities hang in their offices
that look out on the grand cityscape while you
look at starched white tableclothes all morning.
It is your smile which brightens the day of
all who are lucky enough to bask
in its glory.
