Bunny Nightlight 

Still seems innocent on the wrong side of 
the screen, wan smile some degenerate broke
of a child beauty queen.  Refracted love, 
filtered in pink, bottom lip quiver bespoke 
or rose colored wink dependent upon 
her audience tonight.  Is she a good girl 
in obsidian, bad one in white, fawn 
or predator camouflaged in digital 
peonies, pine trees, backstory by 
Ovid, quotations of Sophocles? 
Most cannot decipher mirror image lies 
she scribbles in notebooks the naive 
fantasize to be pleas or private invites.
Shows scars to strangers by bunny nightlight.
