A Fancy and Nothing More

| FROM THE MUSE | BY MARWA SAYED | MAY, 2013 |

We could be wax figures
Or china on your mother’s shelf.

And bow and herd the sheep
With our pink china cheeks.

And people coo and proclaim
“How precious! Are they real?”

And in fights we are hurled,
Are smashed to bits.

Collateral damage,
Yes, of course it’s real.
