kid had spots

what’s best to do?

she asked

& I say all serious

y’really want to fix this?

don’t use soap on your face

use cool water

several times a day

let it dry naturally

don’t use a towel

use one side of the pillow once

then turn it over

then wash it

stops the reinfection

keep your hair off your face

give the make-up a rest

oh you’re such a kidder

she says

like you would know


about these things

yeah I said

I never had youth

came straight out the womb

this bitter & twisted old thing

& for a second I swear

there was a narrowing of her eye

as she worked out if this was true

or not

cos I’m such a kidder, y’know?
