Sometimes he does this smile
self-conscious, tongue-in-cheek, head lowered
that I know he’ll be pulling at three
It’s an expression older than his face.
There are versions of him I don’t yet know
But when he smiles like that, I’ll recognise him.
(This is not it. Imagine the face he might pull a half-second after this one.
Or, if you can get over my excruciating monkey noise and catastrophic bathroom, you could wait till the last two seconds of this…)
