Poetry Monday: Whiskers

I grow a beard
Because I like how
It makes my face look

I keep it trimmed
And short
And use scented beard oil
To moisturize the skin
And condition the hair

I do it so
I like my face
And like myself

If you don’t
Like my face
Stop looking at me

From the poetry collection Men Are Garbage.
