Ripped up glossy magazines

Ripped up glossy magazines,

Cut out eyes,

Ears and nose,

Put them on the paper,

Move them around,

Have you got the right colour?

Think there’s a bump in the nose,

Swap it for a new one,

Perfect it is,

Scratched out mirrors,

And the paper in front of you.

You can’t pretend in this life

Pick up the pieces,

Cover them in cheap sticky tape,

And cover the cracks,

With glitter and shiny paper,

Tell everyone it’s beautiful,

Like you are totally convinced yourself,

I’ve got news for you!

You can’t just pretend,

That you live in perfection,

that your life is perfect,

It is not.

Beauty on the screen

Is that beauty on the screen?


Or a defamation,

A view of what they want you to see,


A disguise,

A fiction,

Of something,

Dangerous, ugly and humane,


Enforced beliefs,

Sucked into a dream,

A beauty to behold,

Nothing but a fake.
