...if you trust in smoke & mirrors
your existence will always be a magic trick.
There was, I can assure you
a time when I was not an object
In a previous life I was a person who had ideas
opinions and plans
I can see behind your smirk
a mixture of arrogance and contempt
I also know that my situation belies it and
that you could care less
So there is no use in trying to convince you of what I was and
payment never requires curiosity
I am more than the impulse to be seen,
I had a name other than beautiful.
