Smile Lines

I want your face
to be populated
with smile lines
So that from your mouth
escape the bleeding
rivers of a map.

With your teeth bared
to the sky
in warning & jubilation.

Smiling Warrior
Sun of the Nile
Let your face be
riddled with
mountain ranges
and scars.

The lights are trying
to be the sun
right
now.
But they reckon with
a light house
by the sea,
The solitary dome
of illumination.

Those ripples gently
hug your face
like saran
wrap.
