-=Doll Eyes=-

by Daniel Peterson

Pig tails,
Pibb Xtra
and black mascara
to outline
her doll eyes.
With doleful sighs,
and fingertips,
she unfastens Velcro
to announce
that she'’s arrived.
And then:
a hurried turn
and look away,
her mind occupied
with what transient thoughts
may pass
her time,
is just enough
to arrest the best of me
a beat
or two.
