Society Woman

woman pink kazuya akimoto

Strings of pearls and a little black dress
the right charity chairmanship
the right car, neighborhood, hair color
never a photo taken while eating
and always
perfect lipstick
that comfort zone so painfully achieved
a climb with more tooth and claw than you would ever admit to
even only to yourself
peace of mind waltzes skinclose with denial
supreme self confidence
that all should and will be improved
by your campaigns
children, husband, committee,cause, society
all for the good of
the edifice
the shell
you have so beautifully
painstakingly constructed
a superiority so carefully maintained
that even a stumble from your pristine pedestal
would surely kill you.

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
