They think they are giving out gold
“Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: pregnant with twins!”
“Britney Spears goes on a physiological breakdown”
“Oprah’s weight explodes”
“The Olsen twins’ hidden family drama”
The magazine isn’t worth
the dirt under a hobo’s fingernail, but it’s priced at $4.00
“100 ways to look slimmer for the holidays”
“Sex tricks he’s been dying to try in bed”
“The most voted-for, hottest celebs of the year”
They’re getting closer to the inside, but it
only tickles my interest.
I scan the photos, taken probably years before the story
was ever written, with computerized
castings and mutations under the eyes.
The shopping cart rolls forward
because my mind has moved on.

Although in some cases I would disagree, I think this refutes a powerful stereotype in a very intelligent way. I have to say I loved it
