Attractive

6/17/2020 ☼ poems

plump, asymmetric boy in
school developed
a personality
because he’s short,
plump, played out,
forgettable,
but now he’s funny.

beautiful girl
needs not convince
daddy she is a
princess, nor any other
man.

she’s
boring.

between winehouse,
hendrix,
and janis joplin,
there’s some correlation
between
fucked up and
brilliant.

when all the babies are
designer,
who will still be
fucked up?
who will be left to
sing their struggles
into a microphone
and make us
feel again?

once all the babies are
designer,
the only artists left
in the world
will be the genetic
engineers,
and by the grace
of god,

they’ll
finally be
attractive,
too.
