-1she doesn't care

on the subway

she wears a mask

a glare, a scowl,

black eye shadow

black mascara

black lip liner

she wears a mask

a subway mask

she doesn't care

she doesn't care

at school

she wears

a different mask

erotic posture

daunting stare

teachers,

teach me,

if you dare

she doesn't care

she doesn't care

at home

with family

her mask's

a lie

untruth

the opposite

of who she is

the daughter

the perfect caring

lying daughter

she doesn't care

she doesn't care

underneath

a willow tree

gazing at a river

sparkling waters

has she lost her mask?

dropped in the beauty?

shown her awe and inspiration?

Never.

she doesn't care

she does not care.
