Beauty

I sit in the car listening to experts speak on Beauty.

it is essential.

they say from an evolutionary point of view –

reinforcement in the now for future biological benefit.

I sit in the waiting area of a local beauty school –

haircuts are $6.

Affordable upkeep –

and i am surrounded by products promising me Beauty,

and magazines filled with hinted love –

with more than a dash of promised sex…

and there on the bottom glass shelve – (as if to remind me what Beauty really is) –

There You are, on the cover of a glossy rag –

anole in beauty parlor

Bright Green Beauty!

Alive!

Here!

Now!

the little anole simply blinks with modesty.

Beauty is not simply evolutionary –

Seeing it can be revolutionary!
