Full moon out and I think it’s drizzling.
The silence is creepy
With all them standing there.
Put some music on, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, or Chopin.
The realism is stunning with each and every tiny detail.
Immaculate manicured and pedicured nails,
Eye shadow and mascara, lipstick and rogue.
Wind one of them up, tip-toe around
In the twilight, get lost in their soulless
Gaze in the moonlight.
The waltz is a horrid dance,
And I feel so smug moving to melody
With my creations.
Pygmalion was a pig
And I’m no better.
