A Doll? Really? Revolutionary IMprov Haiku

Dolls I’ve known have had/
no mind, will, or power of/
their own. Sad objects.

A Barbie for Christmas: A Romantic Sonnet

February 4, 2009

I have, vamping, singing
upon my old, white chest
of socks and underwear drawers,
a Barbie doll, large of breast;
barbie for christmas
Given me long ago, a joke,
for Christmas, to poke,
fun at a request I made for a blonde
in a sexy, slinky black dress. How fun!

But now the Barbie serves
as a sad reminder
of when I’d curve
up from behind her,

and the only low
I came to know
was “NO!”

And the Barbie, still, looks the same.
But my world has changed.
