Ode to Rumi

Oh Roomy
I saw you speak
for the first time

Somehow perfect
Valley Girl diction, monotone
inappropriate laughter

Almost Asian
but not enough
Big mistake
rocking that teased hair.

    I’m reserving all my hate for Karla, a far more vacuous little over-privileged SoCal horror!

    ” Yeaaahhh, I’m loving white on white lately, I think it’s really fresh and clean, you know…”

  10. Remember when Paulina Porizkova used to go on and on in interviews about not exercising and living on chocolate ice cream? Now that I could watch for hours.
