I wear

the new smile

only when I go out.

I wouldn’t want

to spoil it.

And I shine brighter

if it’s not a habit.

I climb on all the thrones

and point the way

to the weakest.

I also have ten children

and a little dog

to walk with.

Still I dance for you at home

while you dine

and I show you the sales

while you sleep

and I shine

in your head,

I shine

and do not breathe
