The Plasticising of Womankind | October 4, 2012

Layers of style and cosmetic preparation
to deceive the eye and hide the real person
languishing beneath, desiring love,
receiving mere attraction
to the thing created
by the thing added.

Sure, go and see and buy and do
and have the fun in pots and brushes,
gild the lily, paint the butterfly
and hope the beauty still remains,
as before
when pure.
