Fashion Week Freak Show

Lauren Konopacz
Come one! Come all! Step on down
And see the waif-like giants as they strut
On stilts with their mile-long legs
All while abysmally decaying
From excessive insufflations.

Watch! as their vacant eyes gaze over
The wealthy crowd, who, like you!
Have come to see their magnificent
Costumes and heroin-chic facepaint.

You will not believe your eyes when
You see dresses, walking down the
Runway on their hangers. Our skeletons
Have sex appeal. The walking dead feel
So alive! All for your viewing pleasure.
