Lauren Goerig: Selected Poems
Poetry » June 2002

Porcelain Angel

The cherub-faced baby grins
His mother
Eyeing the samples at the counter
I smile back and wonder if he gets a taste
Sales. Spring, winter, fall
Sacrificing myself for the day at the beach
Here lay the sandy shores of propaganda
Blue skies of bargains -cool waters of mindless consumerism
The porcelain angel is breaking
No chocolate kisses today.
