Grafitti Girl

image

Alien girl with the exaggerated lips
And the faded eyes
From being too lit by the New York lights
She followed a dream to this place of fables
And found more traps than she was able
To navigate herself around
With her pretty mouth and exotic skin
She became the food for that monster thing
We call social fame, duck faced shame, and botoxed….well
All she found was this washed up shell
A drawing on a wall that’s temporary
And a dark fate that feels permanent.
