she gathers it about her

bits of this

and that

flowery words

and dead birds

and things

she pastes them on

like a false mustache

she thinks it makes her clever


she cocks her head

just so

and if you ask her a question

she will take her time answering you

she only uses

round about words

that you will never understand


she likes to be set apart

she says that honesty

is an art form

and she knows it best of all

but really

honesty means lying to yourself

she is some artist
