Material Girl

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Weekend Mini-Challenge
(posted by Kerry)  – Art FLASH/55

I am a material girl. No
tattoos, no string of pearls.
Cut, weave, sew. Think
these are real snakes,
but it’s all a show. Stitches
down my body are fabric.
No autopsy performed
yet. I am high maintenance
for sure. When you score,
pinball machines tilt, bells ring.
I am really just a material girl.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Your material girl is All American also. I do wish she would have tattoos. If I were a girl I’d have a few, a small Butterfly or several, each different, scattered around, an ankle for sure. I liked reading this.

    I think we can safely assume she is high maintenance! Thank you for participating in this prompt.
