Her hips sway from Brazil to China,
yet the defeminization of even
the dress that lies upon them
turned the choice to turn down the Path of Fiasco
into really a choice at all,
so she demanded ransom for kidnapped hearts,
recycling thoughts that never seem to stay in the past.
The drawback of her smile was that
her musical laugh fooled even the sirens.
At what point do we blame a child
for the teachings of their parents?
