The acne and dark spots that have spread like
A virus on my face has not followed
The citrine smell in my Salicylic acid face wash try to
Erase the haze of 2020 and
My inflamed enraged engraved imperfect
Face. The serums hydrate, plump and protect
Against dark spots, sad thoughts, maybe gunshots.
Moisturizer to strengthen my skin from
The lack of water, hate crimes and bad rhymes
Topped off with the most important: sunscreen
Preventing ignorance and racist chants
Smothering my pimple under a patch
The problem never seems to go away.
