how to pause and be your forever

i was not born with favorable genes
clear skin, high cheekbones,
a symmetrical spine.
people do not gravitate to me
ugliness can pause the world.
have you ever seen a beautiful woman
waiting on someone?
i have 3000 pages on instagram
of my cat and poems.
no selfies.
all i can offer are
rhythms to tickle ear drums
twist your tongue
letters for your fingers to trace
a pleasing font
patience for your vision to fail
thoughts to fuck your mind

the visible and the unseen.  
I am a leper for your eyes
god in your mind.
