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

Our world
