Just a mark on my right sided cheek
showing up when I was about three,
to be honest, I don’t think too much of it
It came out, showed up, and all day just sits
So what, it’s like a dirty mark
keeping my cheek
So what’s it like, this big brown stain
How does it feel, does it cause pain
When I look in the mirror what do I think
It’s an ode to a mole
So what do you think I think?
Sitting there day in and out
since that time it first
Just quietly keeping me company
My faithful companion, every single day with me.

Nothing more to add to this other than I was sitting in airport waiting on a delayed flight. Bit of a mush mash but hey, its a poem about mole.
