Made Up


By Katharine D’Souza

We met, but you didn’t recall. We spoke, but your attention was elsewhere. My presence did not register. My words went unheard.

Later, I changed my clothes. I sculpted my cheekbones. I painted my smile. I opened my eyes with mascara and this time you saw me. And revealed yourself.
