Marie


Fancy that, she walks
her bust cutting through the air.

I thought i was she
the 10th grade
told classmates i would
eat cake and drown in it too
left them all behind.

My high-brow, an air of complacency
I marched right out of class,
my teacher never gave a pass,
the principal caught a glance,
blushed and quickly chided

“Where should you be?”
i replied “i am but marie!”

*follow the link and learn more about Marie Antoinette who famously never said anything about cake and was deeply reviled for no good reason other than the masses needed a villain to lay blame for their woes. Marie is a person to be deeply fascinated by and definitely not well liked. Most facts written are fiction but maybe its the fictional that attracts.
