It’s just me in my Vinnie’s specials
and five year old Uggs.-
I grew my hair long
to save on hairdresser bills
but I don’t have a selfie stick
and I pout like a fish.
Fashion is like the stars (to me) –
out there, often obscured by clouds
but then suddenly
a spit-fire revelation
of my insignificance.
I don’t mind, exactly,
being small, except that
my pen is tiny too
a toothpick to the influencers’ swords.
