the next table over

they show each other
facebook photos of
women they've met,
comparing them to 'supermodels'

a teenager sits at the
next table over with her family
~ mom, dad and kid brother ~
a nice family dinner out

does she know what they value,
what they look for in women?
will she recall their words
when she gets home later?

in her room, she loves to write,
to draw. she plays music, she
thinks deeply. will their
perception of physical beauty

obscure, in her bedroom mirror,
the depth and breadth of her
true beauty? If only the
next table would open their eyes.
