Something about those "desperate housewives" and trophy girls who feel nothing but manage to convince themselves that they are everything.

I like the way
her neck is so long.
And how she paid for that miracle
to let electricity lift her face,
instead of spirit.

I like the way
her breasts are plump with
unnatural existence,
and how she honored her children
with $2,000 of silicone

I like the way
her lips are all pouty
and how more red lipstick
means more power
and how anymore,
she can't feel her husband kiss her;

but she can feel
his wallet
and those glasses of wine
are creeping up the clock with every day
kept company
by two vicodin.
,oh how she loves all of you.
