Beauty in This

a little girl
searches for scissors
in the junk drawer –
doll in hand –
blonde strands
soon fall all over
the kitchen floor.
a present from
her grand-pop,
she quickly cuts
the faux satin
knee length dress
into a crop top;
turns a piece
of duct tape
into a mini skirt.

she runs upstairs:
one black marker
makes a black skirt;
a purple one dyes
the hair;

a blue bic
used for eyeliner;
a red one
for the lips…

and amongst
all the others
same makeup
same pose
same hair
same clothes…

she finds beauty
in this.
