Dominique

This is a newspaper blackout poem inspired by the character of Dominique Francon in The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. The funny thing about redaction is that is takes you places you would never go on your own.

She wore a print dress which
fitted her from every angle,
arms naked to the wind
she said, “I want you entralled
by your own real-life Barbie.”
Later she returned with her fiancé
and that expression of self satisfaction
wearing the same outfit…

Make your own.
