The Mechanics of Being a Girl

%22beauty%22

Straighten the hair

Curl the lash

Paint the face

Tighten the lace.

Hook the ring

in your ear

or round your nose

or on your lip

and hope that beauty

is more than a blip.

Color the nails

and the mouth

and the eyes,

color them all

with colorful lies.

Dress the curves

and hope for the best.

When fighting for pretty,

never rest.
