“Stupidity is a talent for misconception.”
-Edgar Allen Poe


Make-believe
Stabbing the skin
around my eye.
Do I look beautiful now?

Smearing on my war paint.
Black,
Pink,
Blue,
Green,
Red.

Can you stop staring at:
My bumps,
My pimples.
My craters.

My pizza face.

Hiding my imperfections,
Playing May-Believe.
Praying to be your Cover Girl.
Your Glamour Girl.
Your only girl…

Do I look beautiful now?

This piece talks about how we as females try to cover up who we really are because its easier that way. Or so we can find a handsome young man.
