are yo doing very well?
Expensive threads make clothing seams,
ripped out pages of waist-line dreams.
like a nylon wig,
like Barbie's hair
sits atop your head
and the people...stare.
harsh flourescents lights
heat the metal
inside your structure
like a hot tea kettle.
painted eyes
little pnk lies
love plastic men.

I really liked the line, "Expensive threads make clothing seams, ripped out pages of waist line dreams."

I thought this was really cool. Only thing I would change is the ellipsis (...) before stare. It might just be me, but I feel like it upsets the flow.
