You’re So Vain..You Probably Think This Poem is About You

Spotlight dreams of self-indulgence,
Favorite stories your musing thoughts

Endearing blandishments you profess,
Bleeds the heart, dims..the rest…

cold vanity

called herself
the princess
and took her beauty
very, very, seriously,
face frozen
unable to smile
– even at magazines.
