Celebrity Verses Poetry: Taylor Swift




Let’s take a moment to consider
our pop country Barbie,
apple picking incarnate,
the blonde sparkle gown
quiet man eater
we all deserve.

She’s serving it:
high-waisted shorts,
animal sweaters,
gingham and
a god’s honest
live kitten accessory.

Writing songs for boys
like they were checks
(and they are).

Boys this is your fantasy,
girls, your aspiration:
red-lipped voracious innocence,
eating us right up
like so many
sparkling cupcakes.
