Scissors: poem

‘Take off your clothes’

they said

So she did

 

And they prodded and poked

made their assessments

and led her to a fun house mirror

 

‘Look at your body’

they said

So she did

 

But her reflected eyes

couldn’t meet her own

the distortion too great

she became dizzy

 

And they pushed and pulled

and handed her scissors

and she snipped away to the bone
