Untitled

If a corpse skeleton

 

skin pulled tight over varnished white marionettes 

 

injected and reanimated with botulin bacterium 

 

entombed and gilded with thick 

 

foundation, mascara, highlight, sticky primer, 

a senseless goop organized to please them

 

If hollow sockets 

 

bony bulges

 

And exoskeletons 

 

may be beautiful 

 

 

so can a fat girl

Poetry Slam: 
This poem is about: 
Our world
