I named her Fleur
The little Barbie in my vignette
Long brown hair, almond eyes,
soft and wide with wonder
Her dress is purple, striped
The matching tam askew
A bicycle beside her
A pot of flowers at her feet
A Parisian scene on my dresser
All that’s left of my child’s play

Free verse, based on Barbie Dolls
