Napkin Holder

Partial folds in the napkin you hold
origami that betrays your white smile
tumbling down the ladder you’ve climbed in your mind
beckoning those closer
with sour-scented rind.

Something genuine in your swagger
something happily undefined
your truth escapes in your sleight of hand
those curled edges the source
of your charm.
