Dirty Dolls -- J.A. Spahr-Summers

Softball Barbies

They run in packs
They terrorize
They flirt
They fling their hair

To heaven
And they giggle
Pretty hollow giggles
As they press all the buttons

In the elevator
As they drip bikini
And skip
And cartwheel
Across the lobby
Little gymnasts

And cheerleaders
Asking for towels

Jeffrey Spahr-Summers

Barbie Dolls

They lie there
Frozen in action
Like mannequins

Pretty hollow heads
Little hollow hearts
Arms and legs stiff

Lifeless tiny lips
Never uttering
A sound
Not a smile
Not a whisper
Not a moan and
Their eyes are
As shallow
As marbles
