Botox and Vodka

Botox and vodka
Nose jobs and chocolate
Tummy tucks, brow lifts, liposuction
Collagen, enemas and augmentations
These are a few of the things that I’ve done
When my boobs sag
When my brows droop
When I am feeling sad
I simply call my plastic surgeon
And then I don’t feel so bad
Laser and Bailey’s
Facelifts and bon bons
Acid peels, butt implants, lip injections
Breast enhancements, nips, tucks–stitched together with string
These are a few of those little things
I want to look like Oprah
No! Like the Dalai Lama
Just make me not look bad
Staple my forehead so I’ll look surprised
And I’ll never ever look sad

Poem fromHeirs of November: Poems, Prose and Protests (2017)
