Changing Faces
larrylark

You chose
 1
the wrong tree.
 2
even your genius
 3
did not forsee
 4
that the open structures
 5
of a poplar's wood
 6
releases moisture,
 7
changing dimension and shape
 8
of that enigmatic face
 9
painted onto a shrinking base.

Poor Mona:
 11
she'll have to be submerged,
 12
re-saturated,
 13
half drowned,
 14
all because her molecules
 15
have been dragged around,
 16
or alternatively,
 17
like any other celeb,
 18
and she's one of the biggest,
 19
be botoxed into a perma grin.

Although there is substance to this poem, some nice imagery that you had an opportunity to let grow into a nice poem. I feel there is no real flow in most places an some words are forced.
