Beauty (a poem)

She’s so beautiful – what do we mean?

Greek Goddess: silky hair, slim waist:

Can start a war.

What about the others?

Odd shapes, crooked teeth, bulging bellies:

Are they beautiful, too?

Each face with a story to tell.

Bag of Fritos in the check-out line:

Where do they go afterwards?

What does home look like?

Private pain, joy, and wonder:

Ain’t that beautiful, too?
