Treasure Island

Marie Irene Strarup Christensen


Pretty Faces


Pretty faces, Pretty faces
coming over me
Perfekt faces, Perfect faces
think your better than me

Doll faces, Doll faces
overrunning me
Painted faces, Painted faces
wash your faces.

    I like the flow of this poem. It has a robotic cadence, reminiscent of our superficial society. It is often overwhelming, isn't it? The way that the public is driven to put so much emphasis on outer perfection. I'd like to live in the mountains, overlooking a shallow valley, near a lake. Then I could go to town when I needed to, but could live in blissful solitude, with nature. (Report) Reply
