Melting Faces

Plastic kings and queens
March these hallways
Their Hollow somaches 
Slowly drowning them
Glitter and shine covering everything they touch
Their faces melting in the heat
Dripping into masks they claw from their faces

California dreaming
As our foremothers tremble
In the pain of freedom
And our disdain for it

Dirty river skin
And sun bleached hair
Coveted with
Beach babe sludge and highlights 
Beauty is our only savior
God has forgotten us long enough to make us ugly
The dolls at the bottom of the toy box
Covered in marker and glitter
With haircuts done by aspiring glue eaters

When you are no longer drowning
Call me
