Weakbrane


I. “Are you a model?”

You promise utility to the Lilliputians
who look up to you
for their meager moments of happiness
but a tall girl is all legs and sharpened heels;
accustomed to standing for attention, not at it.

II. Marge Champion was the model for Snow White

You will be kissed and awakened
by just the right touch of malice
in the poisoned Adam’s apple of your eye.
This story’s twist is
just another citrus pout in a drink you didn’t pay for.

III. Beyond the Standard Model

This is how the universe operates.
Even though you don’t have opinions or
a point of view
you’ll always find a man to fill in your blanks
and justify your lack of gravity.
