Mad Men, Angry Women –
You smiled back just as easily.
Why did that smile slowly fade
into a rictus of a grimace?
Why did the feelings encapsulated
in those smiles dissolve and morph into
something menacing and mad.
At what point did they take that turn
Did you let the history between you two
add up in the negative?
Math is a fickle thing when you let
How many blind eyes do you have?
How many lives have you left?
What are you allowed?
Think on it, and remember to smile
while your doing it.
