   Sex Appeal
Society-shaped models made of plastic breasts and lathy legs
drip with sex before our eyes;
We worship them.

Innocent girls made of a different kind of pretty
long for the feeding of their hunger for perfection;
We are them.

Sixty-pound beauties made of the final threads of life
are force-fed hope through the needles in their arms;
We become them.

by Lauren G., Auburn, NY

Gorgeous poem; I really loved this. The flow and rhythm were beautiful and your vocabulary is strong without seeming forced. I greatly admire this piece of work, and I hope you continue writing as I believe you have huge potential! - Zoe
