Rag Doll

Loosely Based On


With only used-up rags,

Stitched on threads of hair,

Face drawn with permanent marker  

To look like those porcelain dolls

That are like I could never be.

You’ve sown my lips shut,

Annoyed with my voice.

Yet still you pull apart the seams

When you find other uses for my mouth.

I’ll always just be your rag doll

When the other dolls are

Put on shelves in glass casings

To be admired from afar.
