Mutant Beauty

drinking fairy tales and
Hollywood botoxed expression free
Barbies from baby bottles

Nubile maiden
Baby teeth all fallen only recently
part vixen, part child
rosy lip puckered
expecting Ken’s kiss
yet still living in a room filled with
stuffed animals nevertheless

Parts of your body swollen
ripe ready to be picked
all that matters is
Lolita’s pubescent
consumer choices

oh, what’s left of her
of the blooming flower
nipped at the bud
of that egg that’ll never fully hatch
of the empty shell
living under a bell jar
your soul for sale

– Rosana Sam
