Everlasting Face
Pearly Perfect Teeth
Emotionless Blue Eyes
Yellow String Hair
Pink Plaster Skin
This is what we lust for
This is what we yearn for
It’s what everybody wants
It’s what everybody needs
Everybody loves her
Everybody wants her
Where is the truth within?
This doll?
Her glassy, removable eyes?
Her flammable hair?
Her soft cries for mama?
She cries from a metal box
A metal box.
A box that cries for Mama.
Even as we tear her apart
She cries for Mama.
A mama that doesn’t exist.
A mama that never existed.
She knows this.
I know this
And so does the little girl
