Figments

I changed clothes

I changed colors

fawn to green to blue to red

to suit commercial interests

my image

kicks off celebrations

is ensconsed in tiny hearts…

while many dressed like me

are the soul of parties

I lie here alone

my spirit broken

after all that I give

and is given

in my name

Today, I heard a parent saying…

that I don’t exist
