Poem by Susan Richardson : “Mean Girls”

Smiley, Angry, Black, Mean, Smirk, Face

Mean Girls

glide through rooms
diaphanous surfaces
slipping through fingers
breezes hatch storms
brutality lurks
beneath flawless skin
pretty legs 
strut
platform shoes 
stamp out hearts
eyes command the sun
lashes twinkle
soft edges
a mirage
perfectly pouting mouths
hide deception 
hollow words 
woven onto tongues
tumble effortlessly
luminous
vanquishing
