It's always the smile
That gets you.
Welcoming, apologetic
False, or
More real than your reality
Has ever been

The sly grin
To coax you out of what would be best

One, soft and sad
For a sudden jolt that
Your heart's in for trouble

The fact is
When any one of those smiles happen
There's not a damn thing you can do about it.

"Smile" in Irish.
