pretty woman

our little mid-western

town was truly blessed

the day she was born

she was beautiful

inside and out

so beautiful

that the other girls

weren’t even jealous

it was beyond that

she made them feel

proud to be her friend

proud that their kind

had produced such

an exquisite creature

her radiant smile

could reach out

and cure illness

every single person

she had ever met

instantly loved her

ached for her

she was so gorgeous

that shy boys ran

her angelic radiance

enveloped our town

and we thrived

but the day came

when she looked west

west, where her and

her kind belonged

she moved out to L.A.

and somehow

we went on in our

little farming town

but it was never

the same
