sedimentary sentimentality

unveiled before an invisible audience

to artificial applause

she was designed to be a monument

the indestructible ingénue

a pillar made of granite and butterflies

she stands tall, a towering ballerina

a handful and a heroine

brutal and beautiful at the same time

a gorgeous slab of stubborn femininity

trying to love herself as much

those translucent admirer’s do

as much a statue as she is an exotic bird

a hardened heart with gossamer wings

a moldavite mannequin with a marauder’s soul

intricately carved by sedimentary sentimentality

a stone without a home
