Knockoff Doll

I’m in a corner of your mind. To mock,
undress, to use unkind. Not about me
much at all. Just recognize a knock-
off Barbie doll. A pink plastic beauty,
can I replace? I have that kind of fuck
me face. Not angular enough to be
name brand. Small town dime store bargain, a buck
you had on hand. Inadequately
long, limbs with dents, so hollow, cheap— careless
fingertip accidents. You’ve had the best.
You couldn’t know how soon my shamefulness
would show. Impulse purchase, you should suppress.
Defective lesson in cut rate design
you designate a corner in your mind.
