"maybe she's born with it maybe it's maybelline"

when she talked
the skin on her neck
would contract like a
tired accordion
but her face was cinematic
100 per cent
wrinkle free,
would shrink in the
shower but
leased to please,
her teeth were
halogen lamps
to her industrial strength tan
- she irradiated
perfection and no sweat
from her glands
angioedema lips
not angie jolie
her palmlines
were barcodes
botox buttocks
no crease.
her granite breasts
made every doorman
swell and when
she removed
her panties
she even had that
new car smell.

Smirk.  Ohhh, truth.
I like it.
How about some expansion?
 — mouse

agreed i am working on it. i m still getting used to her smell.
 — unknown

Witty. I especially liked "irradiated perfection". Could be polished a lot, but the imperfectness contrasts nicely with the subject. Not a bad read.

glorious vanderbuilt
 — noodleman

Wonderful, it's good to find a poet here. I loved the images that you used in this piece. I'm not sure granite's appropriate though, I think of it as being very old and worn, which I'm not sure was the effect that you were aiming at. Also, the 'better smile than the Mona Lisa' is a cliche. Your first similie is the best.
 — TheDiogenes

where have all the poets gone?

sadi stick
 — unknown

thanks. i am working on make it a little more sharp. my doll not the poem.
 — unknown

So clever, so awesome, so true!  Amen.  Great job!  I love the "new car smell" of L31 and really...aren't our bodies truly vehicles anyway??? - Excellent poem!  "10".
 — starr

I read on someone elses poem that accordian is cliché. This can't be true?
 — unknown

lol this was excellent, killer last line, love it.
 — Ink_drinker

Nice.  I like the imagery and line-breaks.  I love lines fourteen and thirty-one.
 — boromir4121

um. Line breaks papi. Maybe some punctuation. I dunno. it could be way better, doesn't quite deserve the top rated spot.
 — unknown

i liked it. good.
 — OKcomputer

I think part of the top rate part is that it's FUNNY.  Damned hard to find humor here sometimes and when it hits, you have to reward it.
 — Isabelle5

this is not funny. i cannot help it if my vulva smells of a volvo.

 — JustineCH

I hate the new car smell. Smells stale. I guess this perfect girl has some problems. Crotch rot or a horrible infection. 9/10
 — Henry

 — unknown

haha, very amusing work. granite breasts eh? welcoming, haha.

thanks for the read
 — steveroggenb

HAHAHAH love da endin
 — unknown

I think this should be banned.
The word 'born' offends me.

"Maybe she's born with it..maybe it's plastic surgery" was a line which made me laugh like hell from the Melbourne COmedy Festival some years ago. Does Maybelline have a double L? I wouldn't know, just a query.

I love "irradiated perfection", and that new car smell. This is funny because it is, but sad because it's real. Nice work man.
 — wendz

Witty. I especially liked "irradiated perfection". Could be polished a lot, but the imperfectness contrasts nicely with the subject. Not a bad read.

makes me think of pam anderson.. and that's not a bad thing.. nice work!
 — majan

LOVE the last seven lines. LOVE.
 — Erowen

funny - observant - witty and true

nice modern piece
 — Mongrol

this is really funny. not immature. just simply amusing.
 — listen

loved it
 — humblebee

great humour and cynicism wrapped up in product perfection..

love it still very much
 — Mongrol

ooh, i like it very much indeed.
 — unknown

*snotty elite poet face*

funny funny funny. women & technology...perfect poetry stuff for 21st century...what suprised me though (and made me like it beyond my mean little chuckles) is the bitterness which somehow seeps through. very well done, that. props to the rhythm (sp?) and subtle rhyme and line length and...
well you get the point.
 — gem_grrrl

Love it

love the poem, it's genius,
but i think it deserves a better title.
 — collx

title is ok
 — unknown

 — justagirlx3

Egg-sil-lent...I dig it.
 — JKWeb

this is great, i loved the last part
 — psychofemale

I always think of timoate when i read this.

Botox buttocks makes me giggle.
 — Quen

 — unknown

how about 'her face kinetic, one hundred per-cent'...? i think that would let you let go of 'full of wrinkles', which is just banality in that word-spot. you've really got to get into, if you want to be a poet, losing your logical vision, and become the thing you're writing about -- be that one -- think: if i were this person, how would i see me watching her? but, that's short story stuff, still. what has to happen is you have to have a more direct contact with your feelings -- letting them all flood to the surface, so that you couldn't blame this or that defect, because you'd see it was all just you having to feel so much. so, the poem comes out of that experience. a blog chat comes out of anything less.

Damn, aren't grown-ups writing poetry any more?

Haha. This is so true. I'm half grinning now as I imagine this sort of silicone role model of many young children.

Nice :)
