Make Up

Excuse me
if I look like a
sunburned hedgehog —
patchy, grizzly,
all prickles

But a tsunami of guilt
has engulfed
all those little (or big)
impulse buys:
tubes, bottles, sprays, lotions
for undecided skin and hair
and other body parts

So now I am squeezing
every last drop
to make the earth greener

Forgive me
if I look like a
patchwork porcupine
(an improvement on the original, you say?)

I’m just trying to
make up
for my sins
