Little Gems
By Nicquerica

For a little girl.

I.
Paper dolls
Thatí»s what they were like.
I held them and shaped them
In my hand
Like origami
Delicate 4-line poetry
In a maze of incoherent words.

II.
See the blood spill like rain
From roses
As her inner screams deflect off
Masking tape
Cord snaked by rough hands around a small, pale, swanlike neck
She dances on tape like a butterfly across
The stage
Under a clownlike mask of foundation
And blush
Baring half-naked her superficial 6-year-old
Charms.
Little Gems
Like stones from the crowns placed upon their heads
And in the end,
Poised beauty was reduced to a stiff pale corpse
Clad in a white ballerina dress.
