She Ain’t Ugly

a poem by Alex Ewing

She’s somewhere
In between the sea and ocean
Not sure of the differences
Size, creature, depth?
Blackness?
She is…
The “kinda” cute on clearance,
The sky dark and gloomy under tepid rain
This girl isn’t…
Ugly?
She’s variable moods
Up and down
A take it or leave it
Scratched brows and second glances
She’s a mud pie good enough to eat
The closest thing to a compliment and a diss
A confusion-
Non-attraction of opposites
The girl’s a…
Cubic zirconium real-looking
Big-fat fake
Cake-eating-
Pretty icing girl
