I Call This Poem: Perfect

Updated on June 5, 2012

PERFECT

Everyone is perfect

I meet strangers on the street

With rows of flawless teeth

Groomed to the tee

Unique in symmetry

Everyone succeeds

Stars on report cards

On refrigerator doors

Walls covered in awards

Plaques and degrees

Primped and manicured

Best foot forward

Concerts on Friday

Movie night Monday

Eat cake late nights

High metabolism

No consequences

Independent thinkers

Opinionated and humble

Fashionable and unique

Hands with callused palms

Contort my physique

Beauty mark on her cheek

Obviously imperfect

I stumble in speech

As I approach

Broken cookie cutter

Perfect for me

      Nice work - don't mean to mark - or judge your string - my accent dictates the context of the words - and yours roll true...
