Beauty Is Sold by Jasen Sousa

Beauty Is Sold

With at least ten years of abuse under
her belt, I don’t know if her mind will ever
be hers again.  She fights to regain all
that she ran away from, she wants to be
that little girl she never came to
appreciate.  I knew that little girl,
and I do not recognize this woman
whose beauty is now sold in a dope sack,
squeezed into a syringe, and shot into

abandoned veins tagged with drug dealer’s names.
