A Zit

Before the mirror his presence beamed.

In shock and horror, the mirror screamed

at his heartbeat

apart from me,

throbbing, ready to pop,

even talking, nonstop.

"Quiet, you fool," I whispered harshly,

yet the more he pestered me.

He spoke for me when we went out,

got all the attention with each shout.

A blush surrounded what I could not tame.

He held a bold stance, like a target for aim.

If only I could hide my face,

or take a wand and make an erase.

Even so, he'll go when he's ready,

and I'll have problems less petty.
