He wakes every day two hours early

Coffe and breakfast before starting

Supplies spread out across the counter

Ready for the task at hand.

First step concealer, foundation, blush.

Seal it with spray.

Three colours all blended on his eyes

Wing tips flicked out in perfect symmetry.

Gel, hair spray, bobby pins.

Slowly putting his vibrant purple bangs into the perfect reverse braid.

Catholic school uniform,

Pants, boots, tie.

All in place and perfectly pressed.

Polish on his nails, gloss on his lips.

Check it before he wrecks it in the mirror by the door,

His last accessory, his smile.

Final step, deep breath, shut and lock the door.
