New Poem: “portrait 1”

finely knitted
toughness –
expensive taste –
she regards
the rest of us
from the pedestal
of youth –
sure we are fossils
and she a teacher –
carefully chosen
clothes, makeup –
carefully over-wrought
opinions
about insignificant
details –
since real problems
would require
too careful attention
she can’t muster –
finely dealt
searches
fill up
conversations
about nothing –
does she think
this is worthwhile?
I don’t.
