But I smile and pose with ruddy
young step-mothers, far younger than me.
All of whom my Father loves more than me.
Oh lovely, long-necked does with dreamy eyes!
I’m from the kitchen. I stir my dope sauce
with my broke-ass stirrer. Can you surprise
me with the next version of me? Da boss?
Won’t you please say, Imagine it’s you on
stage, all sass and weight-loss, accepting
Le big award! Won’t you show me, young one?
