No Tattooed Eyes


For most of us there is no escape.

No tattooed eyes

No gelatinous surgical inserts

No stretched skin scars

We have to be what we are

Eighty dollars is too much

To cover grey

If you want to

You can do it yourself

Various ways maybe indigo

Maybe a comb over

Where the part is wide

Thirty dollars for Rogaine

It is too much

For skin burns

From an aesthetician

With a magic lazar wand

I have rent to pay

Groceries to buy

I can only dream

Of milky white veneers

For most of us there is no escape

We do not get to pretend

To be a princess still at 50 or 60

That is for those residents

Of the rare world
