so fashionably smudged

in a sequins
glitter hangover
your Bowie star
wilts over your eye
shutting it

and your leggings
tug and pinch
in a nag

if you could eat
it would be M&Ms
and cheese
but you can’t –

it’s much too much
for one reduced to
gold and stardust
to one so
fashionably
smudged.

  1. Fashionably smudged, I never heard of that expression. Very effective though. The middle stanzas paints a clear portrait of the character, hesitating even though wanting. Interesting read.
