You have blue eyes that go green when you smoke or drink too much and never shave with a razor, a permanent 5 o’clock shadow. You have dark rings under your eyes from not sleeping or waking up in the middle of the night to write something down before you forget. Your hair’s thinning at the top so you shave it to try and make it look like you chose to look this way. It was once bright white when you were a child but went darker over the years, what’s left of it at least. There’re tiny flecks of grey on the sides. You practice smiling when you look in the mirror but can never seem to get it right. When you do, people point out your dimples.
