green glasses on a tuesday

your vinyl skin
your plastic eyes
you doll you
the pads of my fingers
fold softly
beneath the puff
of your high quality
vinyl cheek
my beer soaked
rough lined
lips fold around
the curve of your
bow mouth
and your forgiveness
keeps me while
your Barbie love
surrounds me and
i
am
yours
