Real Beauty
















RICHES

Beauty apparent
defined by what is seen
a trait more valuable
than a heart of gold
half a century ago
Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman
or perhaps
Elizabeth Taylor
highly revered
treated as a goddess
beyond a beauty queen
working for your love
pulling herself together
facing many lights
magazines and counters
lipsticks and perfume
can only describe
what she will reveal
sexy bikinis and lingerie
barely cover
changes
surgeries
lasting
only
for a short time
