Sick Day

written by: Joyce Butler



My nose is red
My face is sore
My beauty - crumpled 
on the floor
Mascara hurts
my baggy eyes
My lips are chapped
There's no disguise
My hair is greasy
frizzy flakes
This is a sick day
No mistake!

I was shortlisted for the Atlantis Short Story Prize 2015 and I've written the first draft of a book.
