The Face of Modern Beauty

This face is
Featureless, it's stripped of
Feeling
Of meaning, but I guess

The world thought it would be
Calming
Inaggressive
The modern face

Of beauty.

But –
To me, at least – beauty is
Many things, but never
Half-hearted, half-erased

Always glorious
Sometimes powerful, raw
Even when it is
Serene, subdued –

What you mistake for
Sophistication
Is really artifice
Is just cold emptiness

A gaping void, straining to
Fill itself with
Money, with
Makeup

With
Empty
Eyes and
Vapid smiles.
