Eyeliner

By
More by this author
The thick black line transforms each almond shaped crescent into the elegant yet
familiar look of;
Her Royal Highness Queen Cleopatra.
Each pencil shaving a past memory of confidence and a very steady hand,
Without it, a plane daisy with nothing to claim as her own or to be noticed by
But with it, emerges a wild and outgoing tiger lily
Eyelashes like Venus fly traps
Used as a distraction to hypnotize unsuspecting victims like a pitcher plant
Never just a dandelion in the breeze.
