Which one of my faces do you like…

I have lost a face
amongst few I have
and now you wish
me to be honest,
sport a smile,
act for a while;
stretch the furrows
over my eyebrows,
twitch my nose in
a cute portly pose
till I have a face
that may please your gaze.

great fluidity in this poem. the kind i like to read aloud.
i like the message.

Reminded me of a sad circus clown trying hard to please his audience. Very evocative and a little sad - lovely bit of imagery. One of my favourites!
