Paper Dolls

Something was tearing inside of me.
Paper ripping,
Paper dolls.
It’s all we are.
Destroyed in the water,
Tossed by the wind,
Devoured by fire.

Paper dolls,
With painted on faces.
Flat,
Smooth,
Like masks.

Paper dolls,
With marks on our arms,
and clip on outfits.
What beautiful dolls we are.
