Thin Lipped

I wish I could eat that
gormless smile of yours
off your face.

You go around spreading
your lips out, then you wave
your hands at your peers
to get them to extend theirs
for a high-five,

and you throw your head
back until your occipital
lobe collides into your vertebrae
and then you yell from the
back of your throat,

“It’s all good!”

and you snatch their hand
from them.

I think if I went ahead
and plucked your lips
off your face, they would
finally see it’s not good
and take their hands back.
