Button Eyes

I once met a girl with buttons for eyes.

Her mouth was sewn in a crooked red grin

To match her crooked red eyes.

Red, red, red, like an angry shout.

Her yarn hair looked like spaghetti

In all that red.

Her shiny white shoes pinched her toes,

Her tiny, creamy, porcelain toes.

White, white, white, like an innocent cry.

The only color that didn't fit

Was the faded navy of her doll-eyes.

They should've given her away.

And when I blinked, my eyes became hers,

Buttons for buttons,

And she was me.
