Fake It Till

plastered smile
accessory I never forget
more vital than a nametag
like a practiced routine
head lifts and lips curve
so ingrained it's thoughtless
or so I believed
but the reality reaches further
into the depths of a tired mind
for energy can slip away
stolen by the spinning clock
yet joy can rejuvenate
and no matter how fake it begins
when eyes meet
bouncing smiles like a mirror
I feel the delight
airy but substantial
fueling the effortless next smile
