An Audience with Plastic
She set the Barbies in a circle to have a voice.
A seance of little girls summoning ideas bigger than their bodies
that look to the plastic as a penny towards daily renaissance.
It’s self-care—an optimist’s droopy hammock—
a chrysalis for the time she isn’t her father’s keeper,
first defense to his chicanery and stabs at smoking a syringe.
I really enjoyed this
