poison is seeping

slowly finding its way

through fiberglass and copper

dusty lips, that lost their shine

claiming respect for being born privileged

dressed in the innocence of a fading glamour

she better learn the lines

other people have written for her

under the magnifying lense

global flashlights, collective disgust

basking in artificially flavoured emotions

by next week you will have forgotten

she utters husky, hoping

for the snow to cover her muddy footprints

failing to understand the role

nobody prepared her to perform

an ignorant woman
