Monalisa Smile

Once home

she took off

that carefully

plastered smile

putting it up

on the hanger

for another day.

She dusted her cheeks

they got to be fresh

the setting is as important as the portrait!

There  is a smile for every occasion

the crooked one

the kind one

the fake one

the innocently made up one

the like one

the unlike one

the one to show bravery

the one to hide fear

the one  to bear the bore

the one she wore for the artist

was the one she had kept for him, the other man.

a to z challenge
