A New Persona

she rolled the body

on the ground

cut the hair

long and brown

scraped off the flesh

into bits and pieces

carefully detached

all the nails

as if they were

prized details

she glued these ornaments

on to to her very own body

she wanted to feel

like somebody



she wanted to feel

what it was like to be

the girl whose identity

she would steal

the girl whose life

she killed
