Perfection

Perfection performs

the ballet of backers

selling six pack abs,

size two shorts

steamed hair,

bleached teeth,

botoxed skin,

flesh sewn

behind ears,

tummy nipped,

added to the derriere

and lips.

—–

(Shouldn’t that raise an eyebrow?)

—–

Perfection photoshops,

censors, edits,

to script reality

for thoughtless feeding,

adulates mindless,

adores IQs comparable

to skinny figure sizes.

—–

Perfection truthfully

thrives like beauty

in the eye, ear, heart

of the beholder,

dances deliciously,

sings shamelessly,

to nature’s chorus

of: just as you are.
