Hello, face!
You are a useful thing.
I never need to see you
Sometimes I choose to.
It involves a mirror
and lots of prejudgement.

Why are you my face?
Other people like you lots.
They are always looking at you.
I don't know what they see
Unless their eyes are mirrors, but that would be weird.
Maybe you should be their face?

I admit you are mysterious to me.
Why should I care about you?
I don't know. You never hurt anybody
I'm proud of you for that, sort of,
If being proud is the same as the absence of shame.

Hi! Face! You were given to me
I'm not sure why.
Here, have some sunscreen, apparently you like that sort of thing?
