The little princess

clockwork-perfection
dances-delightfully
tippy-toed Thumbellina- (ballerina)
in a music box arena:
No contesting, it was mine.
carefully-made, molded, hinged, jointed, mechanized,
wonderfully fine-
pearls of pure of perfection, femininity:
what women are meant to be,
idolized.
potpourri-popcorn, cotton-candy, silly, sickly, sweet,
a booby-prize,
a cover-up. a bribe for lies:
pretending to be a gift, a treat,
a doll for a doll…
for a child.
not, a person.
