January 24, 2012 Beautiful Birds

(Advanced Style, a documentary about old stylish women in New York.)
Beautiful Birds
Wrinkled from head to toe
Old as the oldest tree in the forest
Baubles and beads
Red and Green
Stretch round the world
Great hats
Great make up
An appreciation of fabrics
Woven round the world
Old boney hands
Select fish net hose
Red wisps of hair
Perfectly coiffed
It’s all about me
Don’t you see
I’m admired by my friends
Envied by all the others
Stop traffic
When I move I move
It’s all about freedom
Each an artist in their own right
Through their choices
They see Marilyn or Andy
They are one of them
They have reached
Their prime
