Day 191
7:26 pm

for the love of magazines

-flash-
-shutter-

Duct tape
To hike up the boobs
Reflectors to
Hide the bags

Century City studio
Records the
Concerns of a
Twenty-something
Model

I’m gonna tell
Little girls
This is all bullshit, Darryl

Stand and
Twist
Stick your ass out
Pump out your chest
Lower that chin

Yes, I’m bloated but
I’m also fucking starving, Darryl

-cough-
-sniff-

El Sereno 4th grader
With bedroom walls
Plastered with
The vomit of
Vogue and People

The 9 year-old
Throws up in the
Hallway bathroom
After dinner

-cackle-
-exhale-

And I didn’t have
Time to shave
Much less take a shower
Just make sure you
Airbrush my armpits
And shave off these pimples

-wipe mouth-
-flush-

And now
The girl
Feels like
She can
Better look
Herself in
The mirror
