Where Country Meets Sunset

Delightful

Like a country girl

In white taffeta

 

Anti

Like vino

Staining the white shift dress

 

In sync

Like a happy go lucky belle

Sunset gazing

 

Bashful

Like a flushed faced damsel

Thinking of her James Dean

 

Pretty purples, these swaying bluebells

At her feet

White taffeta, pollen stained

 

One plus one

Equals two

Where country meets sunset

PRETTY GIRLS

Pretty girls

Pretty woeful

Tears and mascara

Not so pretty after all

 

Pretty girls

Pretty sensitive

Holding on to hurtful remarks

Downcast and pensive

 

Pretty girls

Concealing ‘ugly’ features

To questionable standards

Emblazoned in tabloids and magazine spreads

 

Pretty girls

Pretty slaves

Pretty in a rush

To dig their graves
